The way a Jewish wedding was done at the time of Jesus is very different to most weddings we've been at. The wedding celebrations could last up to a week. The responsibility for organising everything lay with the groom - so every wedding was a bit like ‘Don’t Tell the Bride’. Also, to run out of wine was very embarrassing for the groom, almost unforgivable. It may even have opened him to a potential lawsuit from the relatives of the bride - not a good start to married life! So the groom in the story of the Wedding at Cana found himself potentially very embarrassing situation before Jesus stepped in and saved him from shame.
Reading: John 2:1-12
