John 2:10 …And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now…(KJV)
This is another fantastic miracle by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, turning water to wine.
For sure this parable does seem quite complex to the people that don’t understand, and like the rest of Jesus’ teachings, what happens? people begin to mock and make fun of ‘the gospel teachings of Jesus Christ’. When understanding the works of Jesus, I personally like to relate similar parables in order to make a biblical point even more solid. I like to bring in the yeast or the leaven of the bread, and being wary of this when talking about the ‘water to wine ‘ parable.
So what are the similarities of these two parables in order for people to grasp the ‘truth’ of the matter. Well, Wine is fermentation of ‘SUGAR’, and bread is the ‘yeast’. Jesus said be aware of the yeast which represented the teachings of the Pharisees, like wise be wary of the alcoholic wine which is the fermenting of the ‘SUGAR’, the sugar in this case could represent false teachings also, so the best wine or the bare fruit juice is the best which is saved till the last, this has no alcohol which means from my point of view, the pure teachings only of Christ. Also unleavened bread has no ‘false teachings’ similar to the yeast that people add to the truth of God’s word making it less than holy.
Friends, we can always move forward confidently with Jesus in our hearts, and simple truths are all that we need in order to make those correct moves. Simplicity is generous, simplicity is the miracle, and for sure rude awakenings come to the unbelievers and backsliders out there when wine of ‘money makers’ or breaded yeast of ‘false prophets’ begin to ‘sour’ their soul. Being free from that alcoholic wine is so good for us friends where those people who are imprisoned by alcohol change to the glorious freedom Jesus’ loving truth gives us. We know friends that we don’t need miracles to receive Jesus Christ in our hearts, just a little faith.
