I'm fascinated by Jesus' first miracle. Ancient Israeli weddings lasted several days—which required time, money, and resources to contribute to the celebration.
On day three of one specific nuptial that Jesus attends, they run out of wine—not only embarrassing, but devastating to the family honor. Mary, Jesus' mom, asks Jesus for help.
At first reluctant, Jesus instructs the servants to draw water from the jar and take it to the headwater.
Somewhere between the faucet and the palette, a miracle takes place. The common water becomes choice wine in seconds. Normally, producing choice wine takes years—Jesus goes beyond the realm of time to perform a miracle and further display that he was the Son of God.
