Good Easter Morning, Gentle Readers,
I'll pause just a moment while you open your Bibles to John 2, verses 2-11. Thank you.
A short time before Passover that year there was a wedding that 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.
Jesus politely said, Ma, no es me trabajo.
At this point his mother tapped her foot firmly a number of times and gave Him the look. At once, turning to the servants, she told them to do whatever Jesus might ask of them.
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 the servants filled the jars to the brim.
Jesus then he told them, Draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.
The servants 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.
This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.
Bow your heads, please.
