Thanks again! Ang
On the third day a wedding 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.”
1) Do you think there is any significance in this passage to the reference to the "third day"?
“Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”
2) What do you think Jesus meant by this?
His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
3) Mary is the mother of Jesus. Mary tells them to do whatever Jesus says. What are your thoughts on this?
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 they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”
They 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.”
4) What do you suppose is going through the heads of the servants?
5) Why do you suppose the servants didn't say anything?
What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
6) Has Jesus ever done a miracle in your life? Can you share that?
After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples. There they stayed for a few days.
