• Passage where Jesus return to the scene of the wine. The wine that had formerly been water. Most in the church have some issue with that first miracle and would rather Jesus would have turned wine into water

• LIQUOR STORE MIRACLE: Take that(bottles of water expensive too)

46 Therefore He came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine.

Hard for Jesus to leave Samaria considering how well he was received Revival breaking out – the people were gladly listening to him

There wasn’t the general sense of religiosity that he experienced in Jerusalem.

But now he was going to head back towards Galilee – a place where he wasn’t well received - Cana was about 3.5 miles north of Nazareth, Jesus’ home town.

44 For Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country.

WHO NEEDED A MIRACLE? And there was a royal official whose son was sick at Capernaum. 47 When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and was imploring Him to come down and heal his son; for he was at the point of death.

A man went into a drug store and asked the pharmacist if he could give him something for the hiccups. The pharmacist promptly reached across the counter and slapped the man’s face. The man said, "What in the world did you do that for? The pharmacist said, "See, you don’t have the hiccups anymore!" And the man replied, "No, but my wife in the car still does!"

Here is a man seeking the answer to the problem of someone else and yet he ends up gaining something very dramatic himself.

"nobleman" signifies a royal officer: he probably belonged to Herod’s court;{ Gentile ) He was from Capernaum which was about 20 miles from Cana - about a 6-7 hr walk

Concern for our kids brings out the best in us. Coming back from Tyler(Hosp) and unloading car. Hannah asks to leave running so she can get her school stuff out. I am almost to the door when I hear her yelling for me. I turn around and she is in the back seat of a car rolling back down the hill towards the highway. I headed that way and noticed that the car is now heading for two large trees. I run toward the car, catch up to it after rolling about 100 feet, open the driver door and dive for the brake pedal and stop the car 2 ft from the tree with Hannah in front of the tree thinking she might put out her arms and stop the car by bracing herself on the tree. Cost Lynne here coffee but she didn’t complain.

• This nobleman had tried everything and now he hears that Jesus, the one who had turned the water into wine was now back from His trip to Jerusalem. Sometimes one miracle doesn’t make that much sense but it sets up the one to follow.
