Subject: The Marriage of Cana The Marriage of Cana is a story from the New Testament where it is told that Jesus changed water into wine. Present only in John's Gospel (chapter 22), he is the first of the "signs" of Jesus, fulfilled for the benefit of his disciples "who believed in him" (Jn 2:11). "On the third day there was a wedding at Cana of Galilee.
The mother of Jesus was there. Jesus was also invited to the wedding and his disciples. As the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." Jesus said to him, "What do you want from me, woman?
My time has not come yet. His mother said to the servants, "Do what he tells you." "Now there were six stone jars for the purifications of the Jews, each containing two or three measures.
Jesus said to the servants, "Fill these jars with water." They filled them to the brim. He said to them, "Pile now and bring it to the maitre d".
They carried him. When the butler had tasted the water that had become wine - he did not know where it came from, but the waiters knew it, who had drawn the water - he called the groom and said, "Everybody serves first, good wine, and when people are drunk, then the least good; you have kept the good wine until now. " "This was the beginning of the signs of Jesus; it was at Cana of Galilee.
He manifested his glory, and his disciples believed in him ". (Gospel according to John, 2: 1-11).
