There was a wedding in Cana. Jesus, His disciples and His mother, Mary were all invited to the wedding. There were many people that attended the wedding in Cana.
The guests kept on drinking the wine and finally no more wine is left. Jesus’ mother, Mary came to Jesus and said, “There is no more wine left for anyone anymore.”
Jesus replied, “Why did you bother me since it is not yet the right time for me to perform the miracle?”
Jesus’ mother said to the servants, “Do whatever He tells you to do.”
There were six large stone water pots outside. Each stone water pot can hold up to twenty to thirty gallons of water.
The stone water pots were used to be filled with water so that the Jews can perform their religious duty and wash themselves.
Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the six large water pots outside with water up to its brim.”
The servants did according to what Jesus had told them. They filled the six large stone water pots with water.
Then Jesus said, “Bring some water out now and give it to the master of the feast.”
The servants took some water out of the water pots and brought them to the master of the feast.
The master of the feast tasted the wine and realized that the wine tastes very good but he don’t know where it came from.
Then the master of the feast said to the bridegroom,” Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now” (King James Version. John 2:10)
This is the first miracle that Jesus performed which is at the wedding banquet in Cana. It manifested His glory and His disciples put their faith in Him.
