Jesus First Miracle
Hope For You In Your Life
"This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee;
and manifested his glory, and his disciples believed in him."
Jesus first miracle was performed at the request of his mother Mary.
He would refuse His mother nothing. That was true at this wedding at Cana and is true now.
"And the third day, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee: and the mother
of Jesus was there. And Jesus also was invited, and his disciples, to the marriage.
And the wine failing, the mother of Jesus saith to him: They have no wine.
And Jesus saith to her: Woman, what is that to me and to thee? my hour is not
yet come. His mother saith to the waiters: Whatsoever he shall say to you, do ye.
Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of the
purifying of the Jews, containing two or three measures apiece. Jesus saith to
them: Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And
Jesus saith to them: Draw out now, and carry to the chief steward of the feast.
And they carried it. And when the chief steward had tasted the water made wine,
and knew not whence it was, but the waiters knew who had drawn the water; the
chief steward calleth the bridegroom, And saith to him: Every man at first setteth
forth good wine, and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse. But thou
hast kept the good wine until now.
This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee; and manifested his glory,
and his disciples believed in him." -John 2:1-11
