the first miracle

This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him. The water is turned into wine. John 2:11.

This story begins with the words “On the third day,” that is to say just three days after His baptism in the river Jordan, and His identification as the Lamb of God by John (John 1:33-34), Jesus performs His first recorded miracle. Jesus performed His first miracle,
His transformation of water into wine at the Wedding at Cana is the first miracle attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of John.

In the Gospel account, Jesus, his mother and his disciples are invited to a wedding, and in the course of the wedding banquet, the supply of wine was becoming short when the wine runs out

Jesus commanded the house servants to fill stone jugs with water, nearby were six stone jars filled with water used for ceremonial washing. Jews cleansed their hands, cups, and vessels with water before meals. Each large pot held from 20 to 30 gallons.

Jesus told the servants to fill the jars with water. He ordered them to draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet, who was in charge of food and drink. The master was unaware of Jesus’ turning the water in the jars into wine.

Jesus delivers a sign of his glory by turning water into wine. So He starts His miracle ministry with a friends and family transitioning Him from the obscurity of Nazareth to public ministry.

Jesus turned water into wine to illustrate the inimitable nature of God’s revelation through Christ and prove His real nature to the disciples. The ultimate purpose of the miracle was to reveal His Glory, with the result being “faith in Him”.
