Jesus responded to his mother Mary's intuition. He found ordinary things, like jugs to hold the new wine. He used water which was plentiful. And he began to change what was once ordinary into something extraordinary.
Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the people for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water’; so they filled them to the brim.
John 2 :6-7
