1On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, 2and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”
4“Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”
5His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
6Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
7Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.
8Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so,
9and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
11What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
12After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples. There they stayed for a few days.
Virtual Forum: Praying the Bible
Friday, October 2 | 7–8:30 PM | Online
When you pray, does it often seem as though you are simply saying the same old things about the same old things? That kind of praying often leads to boredom and a constantly wandering mind in prayer. We’re persuaded that this kind of prayer is almost universal and causes people to believe, "I guess it's just me. There's something wrong with me. I guess I'm just a second-rate Christian."
But there's a simple, permanent, biblical solution to this problem, a solution that can be understood and practiced by every Christian. Join presenter, Dr. Whitney, professor of biblical spirituality and associate dean for the School of Theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky, as he shares how to address these questions at our virtual prayer forum on Friday evening, October 2.
