Jesus Christ: Liberal Freak, Part 3

All the right-wing Christian conservatives are a bunch of sanctimonious teetotaler, who frown upon having some drinks and a good time. But, not my main man JC. The cat was at this wedding around the time that his hype was starting to build, when they ran out of booze. His mom asked him to hook up the party. And, he was like, "Cool." In perhaps most fun miracle he ever performed (not sure getting your sight back was necessarily "fun"), he gave the wedding guests: wine, wine, wine.

From John, Chapter 2:

1On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there, 2and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

4“Dear woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied, “My time has not yet come.”

5His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

6Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.[a]

7Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.

8Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”

They did so, 9and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”

11This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.

If we are to put our faith in those who provide fine wines, I need to treat and honor the folks at the local wine store better. First step: stop deleting the mass mailings about merlot sales or some such; in them, the Word is perhaps being revealed...
