If you’re familiar with the life of Jesus, you may know that His first miracle was turning water into wine at a wedding.
“Jesus said, “Is that any of our business, Mother—yours or mine? This isn’t my time. Don’t push me.” She went ahead anyway, telling the servants, “Whatever he tells you, do it.” Six stoneware water pots were there, used by the Jews for ritual washings. Each held twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus ordered the servants, “Fill the pots with water.” And they filled them to the brim.”
John 2:4-7 MSG
I wanted to keep this post short so I have a question for my readers. Is there any significance to the fact that these jars were used for ritual washings? Seems odd to me, but maybe I’m missing something.
