Our Christ Begins His Ministry
At the Wedding in Cana of Galilee
The Groom who Rejoices the Souls
The Wedding in Cana of Galilee and the Messianic Wedding
We previously talked about the baptism of Christ, the lover of mankind, in
the Jordan River. After that, Christ allowed Satan to tempt Him and He
returned victoriously from this war for the sake of His bride, the Church.
Now His service begins! St. John the Evangelist presents to us the first sign
that Christ performed, the miracle of turning water into wine at the wedding
in Cana of Galilee. A new Messianic era started, in which the water of
cleansing according to the old law was transformed into wine of a new kind.
