Cana Galilee – Wedding Renewal

Heavenly International Tours can provide participants in our group tours Wedding Renewal service at Cana Village church.

Jesus First Miracle

The Gospel tells about Jesus of Nazareth attending a Jewish wedding feast in the village of Cana, with his mother Mary and his first few disciples. During the celebration they soon ran out of wine. In Jewish culture, such a miscalculation would have been a great humiliation for the bride and groom.

Mary turned to Jesus and said: “They have no more wine.”

and Jesus replied: “Dear woman, why do you involve me?”  “My time has not yet come.”

His mother said to the servants: “Do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:3-5, NIV)

Nearby were six large jars filled with water used for ceremonial washing. Jews custom is to wash their hands, cups, and vessels with water before meals. Jesus asked the servants to fill the jars with water and ordered them to draw some out and take it to the master of the ceremony. He was unaware of Jesus’ turning the water in the jars into wine.

The service man was astounded. He complimented the bride and groom and said to them that most couples served the best wine first and then he brought out the cheaper wine after the guests had too much to drink and would not notice. “You have saved the best till now,” he told them (John 2:10, NIV).

By this miraculous sign, Jesus revealed his glory as the Son of God.
