Fill the Jars

This is the first Sign Jesus presented -John chapter 2

John adds that: “Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and it revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him” (John 2:11).

  • Changing water into wine at Cana in John 2:1-11 – “the first of the signs
  • “Healing the royal official’s son in Capernaum in John 4:46-54
  • Healing the paralytic at Bethesda in John 5:1-15
  • Feeding the 5000 in John 6:5-14
  • Jesus walking on water in John 6:16-24
  • Healing the man blind from birth in John 9:1-7
  • The raising of Lazarus in John 11:1-45

The seven signs are seen by some scholars and theologians as evidence of new creation theology in the Gospel of John, the resurrection of Jesus being the implied eighth sign, indicating a week of creation and then a new creation beginning with the resurrection.

A poem on the wedding at Canaan by Daryl Madden

6 stone water jars

Fill the jars with water
Do what He says to
Let this servant go
To serve His purpose true

Humbly fulfilling
An offering to Him
Joy within the heart
Filling to the brim
