This week we began a walk through the seven signs of the Kingdom recorded in the Gospel of John.
The prophets Joel and Amos, among others, speak about a time that is coming, the time of the Messianic Kingdom, when new wine will be dripping from the mountains.
So as the Jewish people looked forward to the coming of Messiah, WINE had HUGE symbolic significance to them. They were all waiting for the One who would bring to Israel the new wine.
Jesus’ disciples and anyone else who knew what had happened at this wedding at Cana would have immediately recognized the Messianic implications of this miracle.
