Series: Encountering Jesus: Face to Face with the Messiah
Encountering Jesus at the Wedding Banquet
February 03, 2019 | Wes McAdams
Passage: John 2:1-11
John calls Jesus’ turning water to wine, “the first of his signs.” The idea of Jesus’ miracles being “signs” is one of the important themes throughout this gospel account. We will explore what this means and how Jesus’ glory being manifested at a wedding in Cana can still impact the daily lives of believers 2,000 years later.
In this series, we will examine four stories of various people encountering Jesus. We put ourselves in their shoes and work through the kinds of questions they were asking and the conclusions they were drawing about Jesus. We will especially try to understand what John was telling his readers about Jesus through these stories. John was very intentional about which stories he included and how he organized them as he led his audience towards a deeper and deeper faith in Jesus.
