1: And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee and the mother of Jesus was there 2: And both Jesus was invited and his disciples to the marriage 3: And when they wanted wine the mother of Jesus said to him They have no wine 4: Jesus said to her What to me and to thee Madam not yet is come mine hour 5: His mother said to the servants Whatever he says to you do it 6: And there were set there six water pots of stone after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece 18-27 gallons each 7: Jesus said to them Fill the water pots with water And they filled them up to the brim 8: And he said to them Draw out now and bear to 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 from where it came but the servants who drew the water knew the governor of the feast called the bridegroom 10: And said to him Every one at the beginning does set forth good wine and when [all] have become drunk then that which is worse but you have 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
 Jesus turned the water into alcoholic wine—not grape juice. The word translated as “drunk” used by the governor of the feast is the same word used by Jesus when he referred to the drunkard who beat his servants and was not watching for the return of his lord.
 Jesus began his miracle ministry at a wedding. This is significant as his Church, which is his Bride now waits for him to come for her, to celebrate with him at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. His first miracle was turning water into wine. This is significant as well. At the last supper, with his disciples, he stated that he drank his last sip of wine until his own wedding feast. He said he would not taste the fruit of the vine again until he tasted it new in the Kingdom of God. That kingdom will be inaugurated by a wedding feast.
