John 2, 4. (Wedding in Cana): "Woman, what have I to do with thee?"
These words of Jesus have already shocked many a pious soul. However, the Evangelist with his concise portrayal of the incident does not give a sufficiently clear picture of what actually happened.
In the New Revelation this matter appears in quite a different light. It explains that it was then the custom that every arriving guest had to be welcomed with a cup of wine. Mary had already noticed for some time that all available wine had been poured out and there was nothing left for the welcome.
Therefore, it reads verbally, ‘…she told Me secretly: "They have no wine left", where-upon I gave her a rather ambiguous answer in front of the guests, but of course in a very gentle way, saying to her in connection with the custom which was practised particularly in and around Nazareth: "Woman (mother), this concerns neither you nor Me. It is not yet My turn as an invited guest to provide the wine".
‘Each guest at a wedding had to bring a voluntary gift of wine. Mother was always very particular where such customs were concerned and I never failed to fulfil her wishes.‘ [GGJ.01:10-11].
