I believe that it was turning the water into wine at the marriage feast. I'm sure I will be corrected if wrong though.

Excellent answer, Jack. If you don't believe in the Trinity - you are an aethiest.


"Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

If you don't believe this, you're not a Christian at all.

In fact, you're an atheist, because you don't believe in God as He really is, which means you're making up a god for yourself--an idol, in other words. "

Christ's first mircle was that of turning water into wine. This was done as a favor to his mother at a wedding. While I'm a 'tee-totaler' of the 'tee-totalers', there is nothing to state this wasn't real wine - not some fake stuff. You have to understand that drinking wine in that area and time was normal. Even today I know of missionaries who will drink wine with their supper. (It's considered safer than the water in many places.)

My concern is the miracle he is doing now, for today is the day of salvation not yesterday.yesterdays miracles or history we need now faith and now miracles. Seek the kingdom for today and tomorrow will take care of itself yesterday is already gone.

John_T- In a way we becme like the Lord; Knowing good and evil."
Before they sinned they did not know evil. But now they had defied God's command. They knew evil.
There knowledge came with a price. Forbidden to partake from the tree of life in their fallen form, curses, judgement, spiritual death, banishment, and a promise of mercy.
---Ryan on 7/29/06


John_T- You say: "As a Mormon, you follow the father of lies, who said to Eve,
'You shall be like god'"
What about: Gen 3:22 Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever"--
---Ryan on 7/29/06


Robert::Need I say more the bloggers have responded .Do not however be dismayed you do not have to understand because it is God's Mystery JUST BELIEVE. peace be with you.
---Emcee on 7/28/06


Water to wine. The word says it so I believe it.
---Shari on 7/28/06


When we understand the triune nature of man in his original form we than can understand what God meant when He said "The day you eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you will truly die." The Spirit within us died. Man denied God and killed the spiritual connection within him. When we understand that we see the necessity for the Messiah. Jesus has given us the ability to rekindle the dead spiritual connection to God.
---Ryan on 7/28/06




The last scriptural refrence may be confusing, one must examine the account closely to see the triune image of God being created in man. God formed him from the earth (Body) breathed into his nostrils the Spirit of life (Spirit) and he became a living being (Soul). Man was created body, soul and spirit. God is triune Father, Son and Spirit
---Ryan on 7/28/06


Gen 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
Gen 2:7 Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
---Ryan on 7/28/06


2Cr 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
---Ryan on 7/28/06


Robert allow me to provide scriptural proof to the existence of God's triune nature:
Mat 28:19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
---Ryan on 7/28/06


Robert: "There is no 'blessed trinity'"

As a Mormon, you follow the father of lies, who said to Eve, "You shall be like god"

Therefore while you may sincerely believe that heresy, and have a pepperoni pizza-caused "testimony", it is not the truth.

Simply put, the truth is not in you, and you know nothing substantial of Christian theology, as demonstrated in your posts here.

Your religion was founded on a hoax, WE BOTH KNOW THAT IS TRUE
---John_T on 7/28/06


Guys, do you remember Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; ( do you see the plural, Us and Our) not Me and My..... Jesus was present, but not alone. Please don't rewrite the bible, there is scripture about that as well.

Quite right, Christina.

All the Theophanies (appearances of God) in the OT were of the pre-incarnate Logos, the Son, who obviously wasn't known as Jesus until His incarnation.
---Jack on 7/28/06


Alan and Jack are corect. When I was born again and realized Jesus was God prior to his birth, it was one of the most wonderful revelations. I love Philippians 2:6, and the story of Meshech, Shedrach and Abednego, just 2 of many scriptures God gave me to reveal more about this to me.
---Christina on 7/28/06


Yes, there is, Robert--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

If you don't believe this, you're not a Christian at all.

In fact, you're an atheist, because you don't believe in God as He really is, which means you're making up a god for yourself--an idol, in other words.
---Jack on 7/28/06


---Emcee on 7/27/06

There is no "blessed trinity" emcee. There is either the philosophically construsted incomprehensible god, who is conrary to the Biblical God, who must be KNOWN or man cannot gain eternal life, (See John 17:3) or is the knowable, Biblical God.

Dottie #2 So, Dottie, Jesus was The Word, who was there right at the start, being both God, and with God. Was the Creation miraculous? I reckon so. And it was The Word, who is God, who did that.
Of course, The Word did not have the name Jesus at the time. The water into wine was the first miracle that The Word did whilst He was here with the human name, Jesus
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/28/06


Rebecca # 3 SO JESUS IS THE WORD. And verse 1 makes it clear that THE WORD WAS GOD, as well as being "with God"
Part of the mystery/miracle of the Trinity, which at that point had not been fully introduced because it was only later that Jesus told us that the Holy Spirit would come.
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/28/06


Rebecca # 2 ... "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning"
So the Word was both with God and was God
Now who/what what this Word? Now lookk at verse 14: "The Word became flesh and lived among us ... the Only Begotten Son"
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/28/06


Dottie ... I totally agree that the first miracle Jesus did in His human manifestation was turning water into wine.
But there were many miraculous things before that, & Him coming to live with us was one of those.
Rebecca # 1 You say Jesus was not God? Please turn to John's gospel, chapter 1

Dottie, Alan ain't as poor as you might think. He read John 1:1-14. He understands who Jesus is.
You and others must be able to realize the body/flesh that God took on for a sacrifice for sin and the nature of Jesus Himself which was 100% God. This resulted in the Hypostatic union, 100% man and 100% God.
---Elder on 7/27/06


RebeccaD::Are you confused ?that is because you do not comprehend the Blessed Trinity.Jesus was God in carnate ie God as man 2 seperate identities as one man.But yet separate; as God he performed Miracles & as Man roamed Galilee teaching the people as a visible Man But yet God.The bible states that Mary would concieve & bear a son- who was son of the most high & His name would be called Emanuel.Have no more doubts but believe Jesus is God.
---Emcee on 7/27/06


Alan Of Uk::Go back to Genesis 3:15 & delve the meaning,therein- & you will find it is not so preposterous.Gods plans were well thought out from Creation .Sorry you do not see it but it is the truth.The blessed Virgin was deemed by the Almighty to be spotless.Or else the Holy Spirit could NOT descend on her to be the mother of her Creator & Her son.With God all things are possible & He does not do wrong.He is perfection.
---Emcee on 7/27/06


Jesus turned the water into wine. John 2:1-11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
Jesus' birth was the work of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 1:18,20

**I may be wrong, but I believe that the term was used in that way, before the Roman Catholic Church came up with the rather preposterous doctrine that Mary was Immaculate, and free from sin, from the time of her conception.**
'
Yes, you're mistaken. Immaculate Conception always referred to the Virgin Mary.

As defined by Pius IX, it has several problems. One of the first was to give precedent to declare his own infallibility.
---Jack on 7/27/06


Miracle::An act or event which is above the natural order.A work or thing of wonder done by God,a fact produced by God alone which is above,beside or beyond accustomed order of action of all created nature.
The question is JESUS's 1st Miracle. Jn2:4&11-- as a man."what is that to you & me, my hour has not yet come"
---Emcee on 7/27/06


Jack ... Yes most protestants believe the term Immaculate Conception refers to the way in which Jesus was conceived.
I may be wrong, but I believe that the term was used in that way, before the Roman Catholic Church came up with the rather preposterous doctrine that Mary was Immaculate, and free from sin, from the time of her conception.

Poor Alan, Jesus prayed to GOD, Jesus was the son of God.(John 3:16) I think the trinity confuses you. In the garden Jesus asked (the father) to pass the cup from him. On the cross He ask God why He had forsaken Him. In 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one Mediator "between" God and men, the Man Christ Jesus.
---Dottie on 7/27/06


This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him. John 2:11. We always ask for biblical answers on Christianet, these should come above personal theories. The bible says it was the water to wine however much others wish to say it was His birth, so who are we to disagree?
---M.P. on 7/27/06


I don't think Jesus is God. God is God and Jesus is Jesus. Just like I am me, and no one else. If they were the same person, then Jesus prays to himself about us, but the bible says he goes to His Father.

Yes, Jesus is God and has always been God. Water to wine was the first miracle as a man, but prior to becoming flesh,perhaps all of creation...nothing was made without Him that was made
---Christina on 7/27/06


**but his first as Jesus as immaculate conception.**

"Immaculate conception" says that the soul of the Virgin Mary, from the first moment of her physical presence in her mother's womb--her body formed according to the usual laws of nature--was preserved free from original sin.

It is NOT and never was a synonym for the Virginal Conception and Birth of our Lord.

(There are a lot of peole, almost all Protestants, who confuse the two.)
---Jack on 7/27/06


PLEASE! Was Jesus not jesus prior to birth...was Jesus not God? That may have been his first miracle as an adult human, but his first as Jesus as immaculate conception. Otherwise, do I even have to get into the life of the unborn...I mean come on, can't you get past the literal and find the truth in the bible...

For people who claim the primal and primary authority of the Scriptures, some of you are giving pretty crazy answers.

Here's the BIBLE answer.

>>John 2:11This [changing of water into wine], the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.<<
---Jack on 7/26/06


Rebecca ... Jesus is God. So He could make His birth in human form the first miracle.
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/26/06


Frank: How could Jesus birth be his first miracle? God made it happen.

Thank you for answering. For the longest time I couldn't figure that out. I don't know why that was so puzzling to me. Maybe because I'm blonde? anyhow I just wondered if it puzzled anyone else, and I see it didn't.
