“Now John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting. So they came to Jesus and said, ‘Why do the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples don’t fast?'”
Jesus was out of step with the prevailing religion. His followers marched to the orders of a different commander. Their practice called attention to itself.
Jesus had an answer for why his people did what they did. There was always a reason. Can I explain why my faith is conspicuously different from the religions and churches around me?
