Fasting from Fasting

mark_case_for_jesus_logoThe controversy stories begun in Mark 2:1 continue in 2:18 with a question about fasting. The Pharisees and their disciples fasted regularly, as did John the Baptist and his disciples. Why not Jesus’ disciples? Why were they feasting with “tax collectors and sinners”?
