John 2:1-11 First Sign

Posted by on 18th Oct, 2010 in Online Resources | 0 comments

John, the gospel writer carefully selects 7 signs to tell us about in his book. What we might call 7 miracles. The first sign was Jesus turning water into wine. Although of course it shows us that Jesus has the power of God, there is more to it than that. It is a signpost about his mission. The wine he creates is a sign a sign of the change to a new order – from religion, from legalism to trust in the transforming power of Jesus. We need the Power of Jesus.

Isaiah – feel the words

This Sunday we were looking at the next part of John chapter 1 where John records for us the first men to start following Jesus and we noted two things: Firstly that John the Baptist role has come to an end, he is no longer required to testify that Jesus is the Messiah. So his words recorded in John are “Look, the Lamb of God”, Andrew and another disciple (probably John the evangelist) hear him and begin following Jesus. It is only natural and logical that those who were following him should transfer their allegiance to the one he pointed too. John the Baptist’s message has always been...
