THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN - Chapter 2 - Verse 3

Verse 3. When they wanted wine. A marriage feast among the Jews was commonly observed for seven or eight days. It is not probable that there would be a want of wine at the marriage itself, and it is possible, therefore, that Jesus came there some time during the marriage feast.

They have no wine. It is not known why Mary told this to Jesus. It would seem that she had a belief that he was able to supply it, though he had as yet worked no miracle.

{c} "And when they wanted wine" Ec 10:19; Isa 24:11
