On the third day there was a wedding at Cana-in-Galilee. The mother of Jesus was there, and Jesus and his disciples were guests also. The wine gave out, so Jesus’s mother said to him, “They have no wine left.”
He answered, “What does that matter to you or me? My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
There were six stone water-jars standing near, of the kind used for Jewish rites of purification; each held from twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water,” and they filled them to the brim. “Now draw some off,” he ordered, “and take it to the steward of the feast;” and they did so.
The steward tasted the water now turned into wine, not knowing its source, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. He hailed the bridegroom and said, “Everyone serves the best wine first, and waits until the guests have drunk freely before serving the poorer sort, but you have kept the best wine until now.”
This deed at Cana-in-Galilee is the first of the signs by which Jesus revealed his glory and led his disciples to believe in him.
