On March 19th, the Primary Class learned about one of the first recorded miracles Jesus performed during His ministry– the turning of the water into wine at the wedding at Cana.
Sandra explained to the class that Jesus and His mother, Mary, were invited to attend a wedding at Cana. Weddings during Jesus’s time were week-long celebrations, instead of just a day celebration like the weddings in present day. During the wedding at Cana, it appeared the family had no wine to serve the guests during the wedding celebration. Upon hearing that there was no wine, Mary urged Jesus to help the family and provide wine for them. At first, Jesus did not want to reveal Himself, but He obeyed His mother’s requests. Mary had faith in Jesus and knew He could perform a miracle for the family.
Jesus asked the servants to fill six water pots with water and the servants filled the pots to the brim. Jesus then commanded the servants to draw out of the water pots. The servants were astonished when they drew out the best wine they had ever tasted from the water pots they had just filled with water! Sandra explained to the children that Jesus had given the family the best wine and He gives His children the best, too– Himself.
At the end of the lesson, the children made their own water pots out of salt dough.
And all things, whatsoever ye ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. Matthew 21:22
