John 2:1-4 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: (2) And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. (3) And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. (4) Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

We are reading about the beginning of Jesus’ ministry here on earth. Jesus did many miracles. In fact, we are told in John 21:25 that there is not enough room in the world to contain all the books we would need to record all the miracles Jesus did. As we continue to study the book of John, we will see Jesus do many miracles.

In this passage, we also see a very interesting response. When Mary asks Jesus to make more grape juice, he says, “mine hour is not yet come.” What do you think He was telling her? Later, Jesus hangs on a cross to pay for all of our sins. That was his hour. As you will see, Jesus will go ahead and make the sweet wine for the wedding feast.
