In this first miracle of John’s account, Jesus and His disciples attended a wedding feast at Cana of Galilee, and during the course of the celebration, the wine supply ran out. Mary approached her son Jesus and said, “They have no wine” (John 2:3). Jesus directed the servants to fill six large stone waterpots with water and then commanded the servants to “draw out” the contents of the jars and serve it to the governor of the feast (see John 2:8). At some point between the filling and the drawing out of the jars, the Savior miraculously changed the water to high quality wine. (see John 2:10). This miracle teaches us that Jesus has the power to alter substance. While Jesus is subject to natural laws, He is not limited by the chemical and physical boundaries as they are perceived and defined by mortals. The process of making wine also takes years, but Jesus is not limited by time as we understand it in mortality (see D&C 38:2) and possesses the power to create wine instantaneously.

As a result of the many miracles in our lives, we should be more humble and more grateful, more kind and more believing. We are miracles in our own right, every one of us, and the resurrected Son of God is the greatest miracle of all.

John’s Gospel differs from the Synoptics in form and perspective - but not, of course, in the basic storyline. He is born as prophesied, to much fanfare. John opens with echoing back to Genesis- “In the beginning…”…
