A Sign of Something More
This Sunday’s appointed Gospel, John’s account of the wedding at Cana, is unique to the fourth Gospel. It is the first of Jesus’s seven “signs.” A sign is something that points to something else, something else of greater significance. We are to look at the sign and have our eyes open to greater significance than the sign itself. We listen to this story of the water turned to wine, and we know that John means for us to see more than we first see.
