September 20, 2015 - John 2:1-25 Scene 2: "Blessing a Wedding; Disrupting a Festival - so that you may believe!"
Having been announced as 'the Son of God' and 'the King of Israel' at the end of Scene 1 by Nathanael, one might expect the next scene to open with a suitable kingly display of power, but John surprising introduces Jesus to us as a simple invitee to one of the most common of human celebrations - a wedding. His glory is revealed there, though not to everyone - only his family and his disciples know that it was His power that changed water into wine! Similarly, in the event of the cleansing of the Temple (Act 2 of Scene 2), the display of the glory of Jesus is only given clearly to the disciples. In both Act 1 and 2 of this Scene, we find a strikingly similar result - his disciples 'believed' in him! John is a masterful painter as he recreates these scenes so that as we read them, we too may grow in our confidence of faith - He really IS the Messiah sent from God to wash away the sins of the whole world!
