The Feast of Faith (Mark 2:18–22)

Expectations. We all have them. Sometimes our expectations are fulfilled, sometimes they are exceeded, but sometimes they come up short. Sometimes we are disappointed. Largely speaking, religious Jews in the first century were disappointed with what the long-awaited Messiah offered. When they wanted fasting, he gave them feasting; when they wanted feasting, he gave them fasting. For many, Jesus still disappoints—or, at least, confuses. A proper understanding of our text helps us to remove the disappointment and to understand the reality of feasting and fasting in the life of God’s church.
