No Fasting


And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not? (Mark:2:18)


Disciples — to learn (in any way): — learn understand; a learner that is pupil.

Fast — to abstain from food (religiously).


And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. (Mark:2:19)


Bridechamber — the bridal room.


But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. (Mark:2:20)


No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse. (Mark:2:21)


Rent — split or gap (schism) literally or figuratively: — division rent schism.


And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles. (Mark:2:22)


Matthew


Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not? (Matthew:9:14)


In the Gospel of Mark:


And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not? (Mark:2:18)


There is no mention of the disciples of John asking the character Jesus, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not,” in the Gospel of Mark.


And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. (Matthew:9:15)


Can the children of the bride chamber mourn?!


The author of the Gospel of Matthew changed what the author of the Gospel of Mark wrote, again!


In the Gospel of Mark:


And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. (Mark:2:19)


But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. (Mark:2:20)


No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. (Matthew:9:16)


Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved. (Matthew:9:17)


Preserved — to keep closely together that is (by implication) to conserve (from ruin); mentally to remember (and obey): — keep observe preserve.


In the Gospel of Mark:


And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles. (Mark:2:22)


The “Same” verses in the Gospels of Mark and Matthew are saying, “Totally, Different Things!”


Luke


And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink? (Luke:5:33)


The author of the Gospel of Luke created a completely “New and Exciting” question altogether!

Instead of, “Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not? (Mark:2:18)


Or:


“Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not? (Matthew:9:14)


The question becomes, “Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink? (Luke:5:33)


Now the character Jesus’ disciples, “Don’t” make prayer, but they, “Do” eat and drink!


And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? (Luke:5:34)


But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. (Luke:5:35)


In the Gospel of Mark:


And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. (Mark:2:19)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. (Matthew:9:15)


And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old. (Luke:5:36)


And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. (Luke:5:37)


But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved. (Luke:5:38)


No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better. (Luke:5:39)


In the Gospel of Mark:


No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse. (Mark:2:21)


And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles. (Mark:2:22)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. (Matthew:9:16)


Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved. (Matthew:9:17)


The author, “Authors” or “Authorities” of the Gospel of Luke did get one thing right. The phrase, “And he spake also a parable unto them,” is, “Spot On!”


Whoever wrote the Gospel of Luke, their interpretation of the parable of the, “Cloth and Wine,” however, is, “Wrong!”
