Friday 22 January
How would the new fourteen unit rule speak to the ‘Wine at Cana’ incident’? The word bounty would be replaced with the accusation of binging and some serious questions ask about such gluttonous and dangerous behaviour.
Context has something to say.
Celebration and bounty seated in the New Testament context. What was expected, what was needed and the shame avoided for the wedding couple and family.
A different time, a different place, a different situation and different set of people and the ‘glory’ outcome would have been the same, the belief in Jesus would have been the same.
The context would have different!
