One of the most famous miracles that Jesus performed, is also said to be his first. “The Wedding Church” as it is known, is where Jesus turned water into wine.

Jesus was with his mother Mary and his disciples at a wedding when the bridegroom ran out of wine. According to John 2:3-5, his mother told him “They have no wine” to which he replied “Woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come.” Mary then told the servants to do as Jesus tells them. They filled huge water jugs with water and then poured some out and served it to the bridegroom.

Not only did he turn the water into wine, but it was wonderful wine. In John 2:10 the governor of the wedding said “Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine, and when men have drunk well, then that which is worse; but thou hast kept the good wine until now.”

Because this miracle took place at a wedding, some people use this site as the perfect place to renew marriage vows.
