Turning water into wine

The turning of water into wine at a wedding in Cana, Galilee was Jesus's first miracle. It is recorded in the Gospel of John (John 2:11) in the Holy Bible and it is of great importance to Christians.

In his gospel, John reports that Jesus was attending a wedding in Cana with his mother, Mary and his disciples when the hosts ran out of wine. Mary urged her son Jesus to help and Jesus ordered the servants at the wedding to fill six pots with water. The servants did what they were told and Jesus told the master of the ceremonies to taste the water, which was now turned into wine. After tasting the wine, the master of the ceremonies called the bridegroom and said to 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."

The purpose of Jesus's miracle at the wedding in Cana was to prove his real nature to his disciples and reveal his glory. Jesus wanted his disciples to have faith in him and turning the water in wine was a way to prove that he is the source of life. However, Jesus at this time had no interest in convincing other members at the wedding party or the master of the ceremonies. His only interest and purpose was to reveal his true inner being to his disciples and this was fulfilled when his disciples believed in him.
