    In this Sunday school lesson, we are going to be talking about Jesus' first miracle - Jesus turns the water into wine. After Jesus was baptized by John and tempted in the wilderness by Satan, he began calling his disciples.

    During this time, he along with his mother was invited to a wedding. Our Sunday school lesson begins here.

    Miracles of Jesus - Water Into Wine

    Ask the children, "How many of you have ever been to a wedding?"

    Wait for answers.

    Weddings today normally last a few hours or, in some cases, the better part of a day. In bible times, weddings would last several days even a week. Those getting married would be in charge of food and drinks for all the guests for all the days the wedding lasted. It must have been a lot of hard work.

    At one particular wedding, Jesus was invited. He along with his disciples and his mother attended the wedding.

    There must have been quite a few people there because all of the wine the guests were drinking at the wedding had been drank long before the wedding feast was over.

    A feast is sort of like a huge party with lots of food and drinks. Today, we would call it the reception.

    Mary, Jesus' mother, overheard the servants talking about the wine being gone.

    She immediately went to Jesus to tell him so that he could fix the problem. When Mary told him the wine was gone he said, "Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come." (John 2:4 KJV)

    Jesus' First Miracle Maze

    When Jesus called his mother 'woman', he was doing it out of respect.

    Then, Jesus' mother went to the servants. She told them to do whatever Jesus told them to do. (John 2:5 KJV)

    Nearby, six very large stone water pots sat. In those days, it was custom to wash your guest's feet. These water pots had held the water the servants had washed the guest's feet with, but now they were empty.

    Jesus told the servants to take the water pots and fill them with water again. The servants did as Jesus
    said. They took the pots and filled them up to the brim with water.

    Then, a miracle happened. It was Jesus' first miracle that we are told about in the bible. Here is what happened...

    Jesus told the servants to dip from the pot and take it to the governor of the feast to drink. The servants did as they were told. When the ruler tasted the water, it wasn't water at all! Jesus had turned it into delicious wine.

    The servants, Jesus' mother, and his disciples knew that he had performed a miracle.

    This was the first miracle of Jesus, but not the last. While Jesus was here on earth, he perform many, many miracles.
