1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee;
and the mother of Jesus was there:
both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do
with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
NOTE: Jesus is addressing her as a representative
of humanity - he, as God, cannot be one with her in marriage (Christianity IS marriage to Jesus Christ -
he IS a straight male) until sins are atoned for by his sacrifical death on the cross - then - the wine
for the wedding will be supplied - the joy of salvation.
5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone,
after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And
they filled them up to the brim.
he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
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
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.
11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and
his disciples believed on him.
