Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece.
Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim.
And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it.
When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom.
And he said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!”
This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.
After this He went down to Capernaum, He, His mother, His brothers, and His disciples; and they did not stay there many days.
[John 2:6-12 NKJV]
The Marriage Feast at Cana is well- known as the story of Jesus’ first miracle, but it also reveals so many layers of understanding of the plan of God and brings together many of the Bible patterns that it can truthfully be said to be the launchpad for our spiritual education.
Another point of interest is that the wedding feast at Cana in Galilee took place on ‘the third day’ [John 2:1], and scripture is peppered with references to ‘the third day’; but that is for another time.
Revise In your mind silences in prayer, in praise, or for the Truth, when you were so greedy for your own sensitiveness that you would not speak the word which might have saved a soul from a terrible blunder.
