Parental Pressure

I find it fascinating that, as John reports Jesus' first sign and miracle, the Messiah was pressured into it by his mother.

It's so mysterious. Why would Jesus allow himself to be influenced in this way?

One thing's for sure, Jesus is fully human.

And when the master of the wedding feast tastes the wine, he's shocked. Usually hosts would save the cheap wine for after the guests were wasted.

Jesus was fully God, able to turn water into the finest wine available.

I suppose the creator of the universe, the creator of humanity and grapes and fermentation, would be able to produce the best wine. I wonder if it was a red or a white?
