I’ll not be with you this Sunday (February 6).
You can prepare for the worship service by reading John 2:1-12.
Jesus had been down at Bethany which is east of Jerusalem. He then traveled back up to the province of Galilee (John 1:43). That’s when he attended a wedding in the village of Cana. Take a look at a map of first-century Israel (you might have one in the back of your Bible). Find the Sea of Galilee. Then find Nazareth. Look to the northwest and you’ll find Cana.
List some things you know about the wedding in Cana. Then list some things you don’t know.
Can you remember anything embarrassing happening at a wedding? Something embarrassing happen at the Cana wedding. They ran out of wine. We don’t know why that happened but it did.
Do a little research about the jars, the ones Jesus asked to be filled. What was important about the jars being made of stone?
Then ponder Mary’s words: “Do whatever he tells you.” How do those words apply to your life right now?
Enjoy your study.
