Reasonable Christian (32)

At Cana (Jn. 2:1ff.) Jesus turns a great amount of water into wine. If the nature of Johannine miracles as signs is considered, a deeper meaning must be sought. Thus law and gospel may be contrasted as water and wine, or wine may be equated with Logos (Philo). While oĆ­nos is not used in the accounts of the Last Supper, it is obvious that the cup contains wine . . .
