He Manifested His Glory

In John 2:1-12 we see how Jesus began His public ministry in a very surprising way. John the Baptist came “neither eating or drinking,” and was dressed in camels hair and a leather belt and deprived himself of the comforts of this life. Jesus, now enters the scene in sharp contrast. His first miracle shows Him celebrating, feasting and banqueting, sharing the joys of a wedding with his mother and his disciples. While John spurned wine, Jesus turned water into wine. Why would He do such a thing?
