SEVEN SIGNS Part 1: Turning Of Water Into Wine
March 7, 2021
“The reason so many people are easily talked out of Christianity is because they were never talked into it in the first place” ~ Frank Turek
Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.

On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and His disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to Him, “They have no more wine.”
“Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever He tells you.”
Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.
“The water, provided for purification as laid down by Jewish law and custom, stands for the whole ancient order of Jewish ceremonial, which Christ was to replace by something better.”
~ F.F. Bruce, The Gospel of John: A Verse-by-Verse Exposition (timestamp 24:00)
Then He told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which He revealed His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.
There was a REASON to believe.
After this He went down to Capernaum with His mother and brothers and His disciples. There they stayed for a few days.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.
