A Question about Fasting

18 Now John's disciples and the Phariseesa were fasting. People came and asked Him, "Why do John's disciples and the Pharisees' disciples fast, but Your disciples do not fast?" 19 Jesus said to them, "The wedding guests b cannot fast while the groom is with them, can they? As long as they have the groom with them, they cannot fast. 20 But the time c will come when the groom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day. 21 No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. Otherwise, the new patch pulls away from the old cloth, and a worse tear is made. 22 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost as well as the skins. d But new wine is for fresh wineskins."
