4.2 Jesus' First Miracle (at Cana's Wedding Feast)
|Top Previous Next|
4.2 On the third day, Jesus, his mother and disciples were guests at a wedding in Cana of Galilee. When the wine finished, Jesus’ mother came to him saying, “They have no more wine.”
“Why involve me? My hour hasn’t yet come.”1 Jesus replied. Then she told the servants, “Do whatever he says.” Six water-pots used for ceremonial washing were there, each holding about twenty to thirty gallons.
Jan 30 Jesus told them, “Fill them with water.” So they did. Then he said, “Bring some out and take to the headwaiter.” When the headwaiter tasted the water now turned wine, not knowing its source, he called the bridegroom over and said, “Everyone serves the choice wine first and when the people have well drunk, then the cheaper. You saved the best until now.”
This was the first of the signs by which Jesus revealed his glory and his disciples believed in him. Then with his mother, brothers and disciples, Jesus went to Capernaum for a few days.
