Loaves and Fish

Until the week of His crucifixion, there is only one event in the life of Jesus that is recorded in all four gospels: the feeding of the five thousand. We can learn a lot about Jesus and what He prioritizes through the lessons of this story.

Water Into Wine

The first miracle of Jesus recorded by John is not a life-changing healing or the feeding of a multitude. Jesus changes water into wine for a wedding that had run out. Even in this first sign we learn that Jesus always goes above and beyond what is expected.
