In the time of Jesus, the peoples longing for the coming of the Messiah was often expressed in terms of a wedding: the days of the Messiah would be a time of rejoicing, a wedding feast, with an abundance of wine and celebration. And so John tells us the story of the wedding at Cana at the beginning of his Gospel to indicate to us that God’s blessings are being poured out on God’s people, because the groom – Jesus- has arrived to marry His bride, Israel. Just as a wedding is a sign of who we are and what we hope for in life – love, security, abundance of good things – so Cana is a sign of what God offers us, God’s people. Through the death of Jesus, the Lord offers us more than we would ever dream of – not simply the Gifts of the Spirit Paul mentions, but the fulness of life and love.
