Some really cute guy got himself a bride and the wedding was fixed for a time when friends, loved ones, family and friendnemies could attend. Jesus, His mom-Mary and Jesus' disciples were part of the wedding guests.
To get the full gist of what happened at Cana, Read John 2:1-10
Our striking verse is found in John's commentary on the action as recorded in John 2:1-11;" This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory.
Some scholars believe that the wedding at Cana was included to show God's approval for a marriage. Others say it is to affirm the potency of faith when we ask the Lord for something He didn't initially want to do; as in the case of Mary asking Jesus to do something about the wine.
While these perspectives are a blessing, I will like us to look at the wedding story with a heart that cries, show me your glory, Lord Jesus. Then we will be able to see more than the letters.
As taught by John Piper (2008), We see 3 glories of Jesus revealed (there could be more) in the wedding story thus;
1. His Glory as an Obedient Son
Jesus is doubly abrupt with his mother: He calls her “Woman,” and he says, “This is not your place to be calling out my power.” It does seem that his mother expected him to do something. We are not told what she expected, but we are told that Jesus did not approve of what she said.
