Why Did Jesus Turn Water Into Wine?

Episode 755 Show Notes 

From the Show

Jesus provides for us the joy of the kingdom and the forgiveness that we all need. There were twenty to thirty gallons of water in these pots and Jesus makes hundreds of gallons of wine. More than they would have needed. I love that because it is a picture of his grace, his love, and his forgiveness. With the blood of the New Covenant, we have more than we need.

–Adriel Sanchez
