John 2
Two major events are shown here: the water turning into wine and Jesus clearing the temple. When looking at wine miracle, I was thinking why did Jesus’s mother approach Jesus about this problem; they were all guests to the wedding so shouldn’t she have approached the catering people about this wine shortage? It showed me two things: the mother has a big heart for the need of the people and she recognizes Jesus’s authority, big or small, over everything. I believe these traits are what makes miracles happen back in those times and even in today's world.
The next event is a rare scene in which Jesus shows anger, despite his merciful and submissive character. And the disciples remember the words “Zeal for your house will consume me.” It shows how much Jesus cares about the temple, even at the cost of his reputation and awkwardness it might cause. Calling people out about their sins, especially those in the church, is difficult because we don’t want to “rock the boat” and hurt their feelings, but we have to recognize at times, it is necessary for both that person and the church if we are to pursue both love and righteousness.
