John 2 – Not Just any Wine..

Of course we all know of Jesus’ first miracle in the Gospel of John.

Joh 2:9  When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

Joh 2:10  And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

Joh 2:11  This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

But as the text says Jesus made not only wine from water, but he made “the good wine”. Living not far from Napa and Sonoma winemaking regions, we know what “good” wine is: the best soils, grapes, weather, caretaking, harvest timing, formulating, barreling and aging, both in the barrels and the bottles, all are necessary.

Although not of the same scope of creation, this seemingly simple miracle reflects many of the same characteristics.

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Joh 1:2  The same was in the beginning with God.

Joh 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Joh 1:4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
