The story of the Wedding at Cana is one of the most familiar in the Bible. In our mind it can turn into some kind of PBS play with Shakespearian actors.

As Jesus said, it wasn’t his time yet, but he took the opportunity to demonstrate that he was about to turn the conventional world upside down. Message delivered 5/15/11.
