In verse 1 of John 2 we read:
On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.
The scene ends with verse 11 stating:
This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory.
In between those verses Jesus changes water into wine.Is it significant that Jesus chose a wedding to be the setting of what John calls “the first of his signs”?
Big picture answer: It is always significant; whatever Jesus chooses to do! Watch everything He does.
- His first sign being within the setting of what God intends to be a deep and intimate love-relationship
- His first sign being within the setting of a covenant
- His first sign being within the setting of celebration and joy
- His first sign being within the setting of a community gathering
Jesus could have chosen any location to be the setting of the first of his signs that manifested his glory. Jesus chose a wedding.
I wonder if Jesus’ choice for the setting of the first of his signs had anything to do with:
Revelation 19:7 Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready;It is always significant; whatever Jesus chooses to do! Watch everything He does.
