Water into Wine: The Wedding in Cana

Are you familiar with the account of Jesus' first miracle in the Bible? Spoiler alert: He transformed water into wine at a wedding banquet! Join us this week as we explore the significance of Jesus performing miracles on Earth and why He might have chosen this event to begin His miraculous ministry.

John 2:1-12

The Wedding at Cana
2 On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. 3 When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” 4 And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” 5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” 6 Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons.[a] 7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. 9 When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom 10 and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now.” 11 This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him. 12 After this he went down to Capernaum, with his mother and his brothers[b] and his disciples, and they stayed there for a few days.

For Adult Homes & Groups

1. Do you believe miracles still happen? Why or why not?  

2. Are there any miracles in your life to which you attribute God’s involvement?

3. What areas of God’s mundane, yet miraculous working are you most likely to ignore? (provision, health, forgiveness, etc...)

4. If you were to explain how Jesus’ ministry has provided the greatest miracle in your life what words or phrases would you use? 

5. What miracle in your life or someone else's life around you can you pray for today?


For Families with Kids

1. Read John 2:1-11. What kind of event is Jesus attending? What was the problem in the story? What did Mary tell the workers to do? What happened when the workers listened? 

2. From the Bible, which of Jesus’ miracles do you remember the best? Why? What makes it so memorable for you?

3. Jesus performed miracles, not magic tricks. He didn’t do them to be well-liked or popular. Jesus performed miracles to show people that He is God’s Son who came to save the world. The greatest miracle Jesus gives us is salvation!

4. Read John 20:31 together. God wants us not just to believe in miracles, God wants us to believe in the miracle worker... Jesus! Jesus is the true miracle who gives eternal life.
