"You have kept the good wine until now!" This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory.
~ John 2:10-11 (NKJV)
According to numerous Old Testament passages, quality of agriculture was one means by which the Lord appraised Israel's moral condition. Drought-induced famine indicated His severe displeasure. Weather fair enough for delicate grapes to flourish—and to produce good wine—indicated His approval.
Little wonder that the ancient practice of dancing over grapes in celebration of grape harvest survives to this day.
If God's Word says good wine indicated that the Lord smiled upon His people and took pleasure in their fellowship, what first miracle could have been more fitting, for Jesus to manifest His glory, than turning water into the finest wine?
You have put gladness in my heart,
More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
~ Psalms 4:7 (NKJV)
