John 2:8-11 Master of the Feast

John 2:12 Capernaum
John 2:13 Passover
John 2:14-25 Jesus Cleanses the Temple
JOHN 2:8-10  8 And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it. 9 When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom. 10 And he said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!”

What might the servants have been thinking as they approached the master of the feast?
'We’re going to be in trouble for bringing washing water instead of wine...'

What’s lesson does the obedience of the servants and Nike's marketing slogan have for us?
When God says to do something, just do it, even if you don’t understand why you need to do it. If you’re sure that God wants you to do it, it's reason enough.

Did Jesus come through for that wedding feast?
He gave them 120 to 180 gallons of arguably the finest wine ever made.

JOHN 2:11  11 This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.

What does John call this changing of water into wine?
"Beginning of signs." (John 2:11)

"Signs" of what?
That Jesus is God, as He declares outright in John 20:30-31, which we will cover later.
