    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:2

    Y fue tambin llamado Jess y sus discípulos a las bodas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 2:2

    Verse 2. And both
    Jesus was called, and his disciples] There are several remarkable circumstances here. 1. This was probably the first Christian wedding that was ever in the world.

    2. The great Author of the Christian religion, with his disciples, (probably then only four or five in number, see chap. i. 37, &c.,) were invited to it.

    3. The first miracle Jesus Christ wrought was at it, and in honour of it.

    4. The mother of Christ, the most pure of all virgins, the most holy of all wives, and the first Christian mother, was also at it.

    5. The marriage was according to God, or these holy persons would not have attended it.

    6. The bride and bridegroom must have been a holy pair, otherwise they would have had nothing to do with such holy company.

    Marriage is ever honourable in itself; but it is not at all times used honourably. Where Jesus is not invited to bless the union, no good can be expected; and where the disciples of sin and Satan are preferred to the disciples of Christ, on such occasions, it is a melancholy intimation that so bad a beginning will have a bad ending. I am afraid we may search long, before we find a marriage conducted on such principles as this appears to have been, even among those who make more than a common profession of the religion of Christ.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. And both Jesus was called , etc.] Or invited, as being a relation, according to the flesh: and his disciples, to the marriage ; who were bidden, on his account; and they seem to be these, Andrew, and the other disciple, that followed Jesus, and Simon Peter, and Philip, and Nathanael, who was of this place; and accordingly they all went to it. Christ, and his five disciples, made six of the ten, which were always necessary to be present at, the benediction of bridegrooms: for so runs the canon f82 ; they do not bless the blessing of bridegrooms, but with ten principal and free men; and the bridegroom may be one of the number.

    To attend a wedding, was reckoned, with the Jews, an act of beneficence and kindness f83 . Our Lord, being at this wedding, was acting like himself, and his general character, of being free, affable, and courteous; who accepted of every invitation, and refused not to be at any entertainment, made by who it would, or on whatever occasion: and particularly in this instance, it shows his humility in not disdaining his poor relations, but giving them his company at such a time; as also it was bearing a testimony to the institution of marriage, as honourable; and teaches us to rejoice with them that rejoice: and as this was, at the first of Christs ministry and miracles, it is likely it might give the occasion of that calumny cast on him in ( Matthew 11:19). The disciples of Christ followed the example of their master. According to the Jewish cations f84 , a disciple of a wise man might not partake of any feast, but what was according to the commandment, as the feast of espousals, and of marriage; and such a feast was this, which Christ and his disciples were at; and so not to be condemned for it, according to their own maxims.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - It is very desirable when there is a marriage, to have Christ own an bless it. Those that would have Christ with them at their marriage must invite him by prayer, and he will come. While in this world we sometimes find ourselves in straits, even when we think ourselves i fulness. There was want at a marriage feast. Those who are come to car for the things of the world, must look for trouble, and count upo disappointment. In our addresses to Christ, we must humbly spread ou case before him, and then refer ourselves to him to do as he pleases In Christ's reply to his mother there was no disrespect. He used the same word when speaking to her with affection from the cross; yet it is a standing testimony against the idolatry of after-ages, in giving undue honours to his mother. His hour is come when we know not what to do. Delays of mercy are not denials of prayer. Those that expec Christ's favours, must observe his orders with ready obedience. The way of duty is the way to mercy; and Christ's methods must not be objecte against. The beginning of Moses' miracles was turning water into blood Ex 7:20; the beginning of Christ's miracles was turning water int wine; which may remind us of the difference between the law of Mose and the gospel of Christ. He showed that he improves creature-comfort to all true believers, and make them comforts indeed. And Christ' works are all for use. Has he turned thy water into wine, given the knowledge and grace? it is to profit withal; therefore draw out now and use it. It was the best wine. Christ's works commend themselve even to those who know not their Author. What was produced by miracles always was the best in its kind. Though Christ hereby allows a righ use of wine, he does not in the least do away his own caution, whic is, that our hearts be not at any time overcharged with surfeiting an drunkenness, Lu 21:34. Though we need not scruple to feast with ou friends on proper occasions, yet every social interview should be s conducted, that we might invite the Redeemer to join with us, if he were now on earth; and all levity, luxury, and excess offend him.
