What do you think about the description of the waterpots?
They are not described simply as "some" waterpots. They are made of "stone". There are "six" of them. And they are big enough to hold "twenty or thirty gallons a piece." (John 2:6) This type of visual precision on numbers, size and composition provides evidence of the Gospels being eyewitness accounts.
What is meant by, "the manner of purification of the Jews" (John 2:6)?
To be ceremonially clean, Jews had to wash not just their hands before a meal, but their hands and the dishes after every course of the meal. They also had to wash their feet for the reasons mentioned in John chapter 1, hence the need for large waterpots.
What might the servants may have been thinking as they approached the master of the feast?
'We’re going to be in trouble for bringing washing water instead of wine...'
What’s lesson does the obedience of the servants and Nike's marketing slogan have for us?
When God says to do something, just do it, even if you don’t understand why you need to do it. If you’re sure that God wants you to do it, that's enough.
Did Jesus come through for that wedding feast?
Absolutely. He gave them 120 to 180 gallons of arguably the finest wine ever made. Can you imagine what that wine must have tasted like?
By the way, what does John call this changing of water into wine?
"Beginning of signs." (John 2:11)
"Signs" of what?
That Jesus is God, as he declares outright in John 20:30-31, which we will cover later.
