This Passage is about the religious devotion of the disciples of Jesus. It is connected to the previous story by the negative of feasting=fasting. Celebration and Joy characterized the followers of Jesus and those have never been taken as the marks of serious religiosity.
“God doesn’t want you to be happy he wants you to be holy” – is a denial of true holiness, yet this is all we know of holiness.
The problem comes from external religiosity
