Read John 2 today.

This chapter includes the account of Jesus turning water into wine while attending a wedding in Cana. We also read about Him overturning the tables of the merchants and the money changers at the temple area during the time of celebrating the Passover.
The walking distance between where these events took place is over 100 miles. Sometimes we forget that transportation in Jesus’ day was limited to how far your sandals would take you. Imagine embarking on a trip to a place 100 miles away. One way. Walking.
This is what Jesus did. He did it to celebrate the Jewish Passover. Jesus was Jewish, and He took the practice of the Jewish faith seriously. Many of the practices were intended to help the people remember who God is, and what God has done. In the midst of every day life, they had a tendency to forget. So do we.
Our upcoming celebration of Jesus’ birth is an opportunity to remember. What rituals or practices do you have for this season? Which of these help you remember who God is and what God has done?
John 2:12-13 NLT
After the wedding he went to Capernaum for a few days with his mother, his brothers, and his disciples. [13] It was nearly time for the Jewish Passover celebration, so Jesus went to Jerusalem.
