Jesus Is Asked About Fasting

14 One day John's disciples came. They said to Jesus, "We and the Pharisees go without eating. Why don't your disciples go without eating?" 15 Jesus answered, "How can the guests of the groom be sad while he is with them? The time will come when the groom will be taken away from them. Then they will fast. 16 "People don't sew a patch of new cloth on old clothes. The new piece will pull away from the old. That will make the tear worse. 17 "People don't pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst. The wine will run out, and the wineskins will be destroyed. No, everyone pours new wine into new wineskins. Then both are saved."
