John 2:1-11

2:1. The third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.
2:2. Jesus was also invited with His disciples to the marriage.
2:3. The wine failing, the mother of Jesus said to Him, “They have no wine.”
2:4. Jesus said to her, “Woman, what is that to Me and to you? My hour has not yet come.”

What is that to Me, etc. . .These words of our Savior, spoken to his mother, have been understood by some commentators as harsh, they not considering the next following verse: “Do whatever He shall say to you,” which plainly shows that His mother knew of the miracle that He was to perform, and that it was at her request He wrought it; besides the manner of speaking the words as to the tone, and the countenance shown at the same time, which could only be known to those who were present, or from what had followed: for words indicating anger in one tone of voice, would be understood quite the reverse in another.

2:5. His mother said to the waiters, “Do whatever He shall say to you.”
2:6. Now there were set there six stone water jars for the Jews' manner of purification which contained 18 to 27 gallons apiece.
2:7. Jesus said to them, “Fill the water jars with water,” and they filled them up to the brim.
