Discussion for Mark 2:22

  • Fasting gives time for the stomach to settle. making way for a new beginning after receiving the holy spirit. The old is done away with. The new has come.
  • Tahni Jesus came teaching man great truths from HIs father....But He must teach slowly so our minds can receive and accept what He teaches....He is saying that if we have too much thrust upon us at once it would overwhelm us....we couldn 't understand and we would lose interest in further study. Therefore He is not answering their questions fully as they are not ready to receive it. Jesus teaches us slowly, so the more we study the more He opens our minds to His words.
  • What does this verse mean? Why was the comment made after speaking of how we are to fast when Yeshua is not on earth. Does fasting make somethimg happen to the body which is beneficial toward receiving a renewed spirit?
