Faith Tidbit #20
The first miracle performed by Jesus, according to the Gospel of John, was when He turned water into wine at a wedding in the Galilean town of Cana. Usually, when the New Testament speaks of Jesus' miracles, it uses the term semeia, meaning sign, to describe them. This is significant. Signs don't point to themselves and they're not ends in themselves; they point elsewhere. Jesus' signs point to His lordship, to His power over life and death.
