Wedding Pt.III

 9 When the host tasted the water that had become wine (he didn't know what had just happened but the servants, of course, knew), he called out to the bridegroom, 10 "Everybody I know begins with their finest wines and after the guests have had their fill brings in the cheap stuff. But you've saved the best till now!"

11 This act in Cana of Galilee was the first sign Jesus gave, the first glimpse of his glory. And his disciples believed in him.

12 After this he went down to Capernaum along with his mother, brothers, and disciples, and stayed several days. John 2:9-12 (The Message)

The first glimpse of the Son’s glory-the first glimpse of what God-With-Us might mean for humanity-changing water to wine, at his mother’s request, before his time, that very few saw, for a group of friends at a wedding celebration. And what does Jesus do next? Hangs out with his family and friends for a few days. What do you think they talked about? Imagine yourself in this story; first as the steward, then as a servant who knew what Jesus had done. Which role fits best with your understanding of who Jesus is?
