The Book of John - Chapter 2: Jesus Turns Water into Wine

Welcome, young readers, as we continue our journey through the book of John. In the previous chapter, we discovered the profound truth of Jesus as the Word made flesh. Today, we delve into Chapter 2, where we witness Jesus performing His first miracle of turning water into wine. Let's explore the significance of this miracle and how it reveals Jesus' divine power and love.


In Chapter 2, Jesus, His mother, and His disciples attend a wedding in Cana. During the festivities, the hosts run out of wine, which was a significant social embarrassment. Jesus' mother, Mary, approaches Him and informs Him of the situation. Jesus responds, "Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come." Despite this initial response, Mary instructs the servants to do whatever Jesus tells them.

Jesus then commands the servants to fill six stone water jars with water. He tells them to draw some out and take it to the master of the feast. To their amazement, the water has turned into the finest wine. This miracle reveals Jesus' divine power to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Through this act of turning water into wine, Jesus shows His love and care for the needs of others. He demonstrates that He has the authority and ability to bring joy and abundance into our lives. This miracle is a sign of His divine nature and a foreshadowing of the abundant life He offers to all who believe in Him.

Questions for children
1. What was Jesus' first miracle in Chapter 2?

Remember, dear children, Jesus is the one who can transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. He loves and cares for us, and His miracles demonstrate His divine power and love. Let us trust in Him and invite Him into our lives, knowing that He brings joy and abundance. Stay tuned for the next devotional as we continue our journey through the book of John.
