John 2:1-5 The First Miracle of Jesus

00:0000:00

John 2:1 On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. 3 And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine." 4 Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come."5 His mother said to the servants, "Whatever He says to you, do it."

In this great section of scripture we begin to see Jesus as He does His first miracle revealing yet another facet of who He is. He is God over Nature and God over time. Only God can make wine out of water. He is revealing more of who He is to His disciples, His mother, and the servants who see the miracle. Even though this is His first miracle, it is a private one for only a privileged few who get to witness it. These verses reveal some principles we are to use as we seek to please Him and live our life as an obedient and productive Christian.
