Religious or not, we’ve all heard the story before…

  • Jesus gets invited to a first century Hebrew wedding.
  • The party rages on.
  • The last box of Franzia runs dry.
  • Some servants bring Jesus 6 bottles of Aquafina.
  • Jesus changes the water into a 1787 Chateau Lafite Bordeaux.

How’s that for contextualization?

If you want to read the story for yourself (please do) check out John 2:1-12. As I was reading tonight, this truth hit me: Everybody knows that Jesus turned water into wine. The part that often gets left out, however, is that he changed it into the best wine. [John 2:9-10]
