Jesus, along with his mother and his disciples, were attending a wedding at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother informed him that there was no more wine available at the wedding.
Jesus noticed there were six stone water jars capable of holding twenty to thirty gallons of water in each. Jesus ordered his servants to fill these jars to the top with water and to present a cup to the master of the banquet.
The master of the banquet then told the bridegroom that the wine he had just tasted was the best wine he drank at the wedding.
The servants of Jesus realized at this moment that he had turned water into wine and performed one of his first miracles.
This story is a representation of the Christian belief that Jesus was capable of performing miracles. This story is also related to the belief that Jesus was the son of God as normal human beings would not have the capability of doing what Jesus did.
The Christian belief that Jesus is a devine figure would support the reliability of this story from the Gospel of John. This story would also support the major Christian belief that Jesus has the power to come back to Earth to resurrect the dead. The miracles Jesus performed is proof to Christians that he is capable of performing tasks such as resurrecting the dead.
