Bible: John 2:1-10

Turning Water into Wine

2:1 Now on the third day there was a wedding at Cana 1  in Galilee. 2  Jesusmother 3  was there, 2:2 and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding. 4  2:3 When the wine ran out, Jesusmother said to him, “They have no wine left.” 5  2:4 Jesus replied, 6 Woman, 7  why are you saying this to me? 8  My time 9  has not yet come.” 2:5 His mother told the servants, “Whatever he tells you, do it.” 10 

2:6 Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washing, 11  each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 12  2:7 Jesus told the servants, 13 Fill the water jars with water.” So they filled them up to the very top. 2:8 Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the head steward,” 14  and they did. 2:9 When 15  the head steward tasted the water that had been turned to wine, not knowing where it came from 16  (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), he 17  called the bridegroom 2:10 and said to him, “Everyone 18  serves the good wine first, and then the cheaper 19  wine when the guests 20  are drunk. You have kept the good wine until now!
