Why does Jesus sometimes ask people not to tell about what He has done?

There is not one single answer, just possibilities!  It could be that Jesus doesn’t want them to tell until they know the whole story.  It could be that Jesus doesn’t want people too caught up in the miraculous parts of His ministry because it doesn’t really build a deep faith.  It could be that it is important to be filled up first, and then get busy sharing.  We do know the whole story and have all the tools and support we need to build our faith, get filled up, and share the story of God’s love revealed in Jesus! – Pastor Trudy Stoffel
