Then there was no more wine and the guests had nothing to drink. Mary went to Jesus and told Him what had happened. She knew Jesus could do something and told the servants to do whatever Jesus told them to do.
Jesus saw there were set there six water pots of stone that was used to purifying or used for ritual washing for the Jews. Each of these six pots could contain about nine gallons of liquid.
Jesus told the servants to fill the water pots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. Next the servants were told to draw out the water and take it to the governor of the feast, the person who was in charge of the wedding.
When the governor of the feast tasted the water he was shocked to find that Jesus had turned it into wine. He called the bridegroom and said how wonderful it was. He said that usually a host serves the best wine first but you have kept the really best wine to be served last.
