Recall in Chapter 1 that whenDream Life Mastery Jesus came down from heaven and took on human flesh, John said: "We have seen his glory" (John 1:14). In other words, because Jesus was God, he could demonstrate the glory of God by all that he said, all that he did, and all that he was.
In Chapter 2, let's look at how Jesus displays his divine glory. John shows us the divine glory of Christ in 3 consecutive episodes that occur early in the ministry of Jesus: 1) His compassionate miracle of turning water into wine (v. 1-11); 2) His wrathful cleansing of the temple (v. 12-22); and 3) His supernatural knowledge of every human being (v. 23-25). The focus of this article will be the miraculous turning of water into wine.
Because Jesus is God, he could do anything (except sin). As the God-Man, he repeatedly demonstrated his divine power. John recorded several of these miraculous displays of glory The other gospel writers (Matthew, Mark and Luke) also record many amazing acts of divine power by the hand or mouth of Jesus. He was the greatest miracle worker to ever walk on this planet. No one else even comes close. (See Matthew 4:23-25.)
Certainly Jesus did many of these miracles out of perfectly motivated compassion for people in need. Mark tells us that a leper came to Jesus and begged to be healed. "Moved with pity, he (Jesus) stretched out his hand and touched him (the leper) and said to him, 'I will; be clean.' And immediately the leprosy left him and he was made clean" (Mark 1:40-41).
Right before Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, he was so moved by compassion for Mary and Martha that "Jesus wept" (John 11:35). And as Jesus approached the tomb of Lazarus, we are told that he was "deeply moved again" (John 11:38).
