I have an interesting idea about the water to wine miracle of John 2. I think the idea was planted in my mind by a commentator but I cannot recall which one. When Mary asked Jesus to handle the lack of wine at the wedding ceremony, Jesus responded that His time had not yet come. Can we read behind this conversation that Mary was asking Jesus to clear her reputation by doing something Divine that would vindicate her story of the miraculous conception?
“The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.”
