 Form 2 CRE Lessons: Jesus begins His work in Galilee

The questions about fasting:
The Pharisees and scribes asked Jesus why his disciples are not fasting like the disciples of John the Baptist.
In reply, Jesus told them that it is not possible to make the wedding guest fast while the bridegroom was still with them.
The day would come when the bridegroom would be taken away from them. It is only them that they would fast.
In this parable, Jesus meant that the present time is like a feast because Jesus was still with them. That his disciples would only fast after his death and resurrection.
He also pointed out that it was not merely the observance of religions practices that was required but faith.-hence Jesus faced opposition because his disciples did not fast.
