On the Third Day…

Passage: John 2:1-11

Bible Text: John 2:1-11

As we begin this passage, we begin a portion of John known by Biblical Scholars as, β€œThe Book of Signs.” With its first words, we already hear echoes of the past, and whispers of the future. We hear the words, β€œOn the third day,” and know that these are words that we have heard before, and words that we will hear again — words that are rich with meaning beyond what would be found in a literal reading of the text. We are entering a story, rich in symbolism, one to be read not as historical narrative, but rather as spiritual revelation.
