Jesus who works in God’s Authority and Timing

John 2:1-5

1 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, ‘They have no more wine.’

‘Woman, why do you involve me?’ Jesus replied. ‘My hour has not yet come.’

His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’

The wine is important during the wedding banquet, but it was gone (3a). Jesus’ mother brought this issue to Jesus, saying ‘They have no more wine.’ (3b).

What was the response of Jesus? See v4.

‘Woman, why do you involve me?’ Jesus replied. ‘My hour has not yet come.’

Jesus called His mother not ‘mother’ but ‘woman’. Jesus would work based not on the human suggestion (e.g., mother’s suggestion), authority (e.g., the authority of the mother), or timing but on God’s authority and timing only. When Jesus works by God’s authority and timing, absolute obedience is required (5) (e.g., ‘Do whatever he tells you.’).
