The Wedding at Cana

A reflection by Hetty on the Wedding at Cana. John 2:1-11

A bystander at the Wedding at Cana: I surely must have had as much to drink as those around me, but the celebrationns are set to continue for a while yet. On observing Jesus talking his mother to task and giving strange orders to the servants, my interest was piqued. How amazing the resulting miracle! Who is this man? Who is he related to? Where can I find out more about him?

To follow Jesus at this point would be to follow a magician, a sideshow.What about when he begins to say things people don’t want to hear? What about when he starts to make demands of me?

Lord, may I grow in my understanding of Jesus day by day. Please give me the faith and courage, not just to know him, but also to follow him, willingly, in obedience.

  1. Hi Pieter,
    Thanks for the article. It is great to try and put ourselves into the pages of scripture. Would we have denied Jesus thrice? Or needed to see the risen Christ like Thomas?

    • My wife, who wrote this, is a Sunday School teacher and has a real knack of seeing stories from ‘within’ the story. Thanks for the comments – I’ll pass them on.
