Recently, the reading in church was from the Gospel of John, which told of the miracle at the wedding in Cana of Galilee (January 17, 2016). I wrote a sermon that focused on that reading, which is posted on my Bus Stop Sermons blog (here is a link).
I feel it is important to realize that the miracle was not changing water into wine. The miracle was Jesus baptizing with the Holy Spirit, placing holy water into the bodies of spiritually dead Jews. That is the miracle that fulfilled the prophecy of John the Baptist.
After I wrote my sermon and posted it, I began an in-depth interpretation of John’s first eleven verses in the second chapter of his Gospel. It ended up being 14 pages long (Times New Roman 14 font), with a couple of pictures taking up space. I point out much more than a sermon allows, but it is insight that needs to be made public. I feel it is worth a read, but here is not the place to post it.
I have posted it on the Katrina Pearls website. Here is a link [site removed – email if you want to read this article] to the article. Feel free to comment, question or make a suggestion.
