Hey person, that’s pretty cool that Jesus said, “Follow me” and people followed him. I’ve been trying that all week and I can’t get anyone to follow me. Well, except you that is. Because I hook you to my leash and make you follow me.
I guess Jesus was pretty special. So after he got all those disciples to follow him, what did he do with them?
He took them to a party? No way! I knew there was a reason I wanted to follow Jesus.
Yes, I’ll for sure listen, person. I want to hear about this party.
Jesus’ mother was at a wedding in Cana of Galilee and both Jesus and his disciples were invited.
If I had been following Jesus back then I could have gone to the party too.
I am listening.
While Jesus was at the wedding they ran out of wine.
That’s not so bad. I just drink water. They could do that too.
Oh. It was really embarrassing in those days to run out of wine at a wedding? So what did they do?
Jesus mother told Jesus they were out of wine? Why did she do that?
Yes, I’m listening.
Jesus told his mother his hour had not yet come, but he did what she wanted anyway.
His mother said to the servants, “Whatever he says to you, do it.”
There were six stone water pots that each contained twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus told the servants to fill them with water and the servants filled them to the brim.
Then Jesus told them to draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.
The master of the feast tasted it and called the bridegroom. He said to the bridegroom, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
This was Jesus’ first miraculous sign and because of it his disciples believed in him.
Hey person, do you think maybe next time Jesus could turn the water into fish juice instead? I think I drank too much of that special water. I’m feeling kind of tipsy.
