Updated: Apr 6, 2020
Come and join Veteran SGT Steve McFarland for Tuesday night's "Healing Through Faith" addition of Warriors for Life (WFL) Virtual Group Support Community Services brought to you by Victory for Veterans (VFV).
"Water Into Wine - Out With The Old - In With The New"
Tuesday's Topic: "Water Into Wine - Out With The Old - In With The New"
In our previous two sessions, we have seen Jesus baptized by John the Baptist, and then undergoing temptations and testing by Satan. When Jesus began His earthly ministry, He didn't begin it with a grand crusade, but by going to a wedding. Why a wedding? What are the two "bookends" in the Bible? What do marriage and weddings symbolize in the Bible?
This is the story of the first miracle of Jesus, which has no parallel in the synoptic Gospels, and it stands quite alone giving insight into the way Jesus and His disciples lived that many Christians love to ignore: Jesus drank wine. (Horrors!) Just for fun, compare this passage with Colossians 2:20 ff.
If this blows your mind, then let me quickly sum up this passage for you: Jesus performed His first miracle at Cana, where, for the first time His glory and authority was revealed, and His disciples came to believe in Him; let’s have a closer look…
As our next scene opens, Jesus and His disciples have been invited to a wedding. Wedding-celebrations lasted up to a week, depending on the resources of the family, and they were a time of feasting and drinking. This was often a community-wide event.
