the cana wedding day

If you heard any bible stories, you probably heard this one.It’s located in the Gospel of John. Jesus is with his Mother and other disciples, traveling in a group, as most people did, were attending a wedding. Mother must have heard something and said to her famous son, “They have no wine”. He balked a bit “what is this to me? My time has not come yet”. Now I wonder, what time is that? Time being a construct that supernatural beings know how to bend and manipulate. Or was it simply that it was not his time to reveal himself as a miracle worker. Never the less, he asks the servants to fill up the large water jars which were used in purification, and to bring a jar of it to the chief steward, who, when tasting, proclaims that the Father of the bride saved the best from the last. No one knew but the servants. There are many references in Christs teachings about the first and last, this seems to be one of them. What rang in my mind for the two days after doing that reading for the day, was “nobody knew the truth except the servants” Again referring that the last should be first. I will ponder and research this story of a miracle occuring at a Hebrew wedding way over 2 years ago. Because of the servants, and farther into the entire metaphor of bridegrooms and brides. In the high church, Christ is the bride, the groom, saacrificial lamb. More to come.
