Chapter 21 wrestles with miracles, and specifically the making of wine at a wedding. McLaren has a good way of challenging people who believe in miracles, and people who do not believe in miracles. At the root of this, is why do we have miracles? Do miracles show that Jesus is God? Or, in a more Anabaptist understanding, do miracles serve as surprising vehicles toward freedom, health and salvation?
While this story is not being told this year in Peace School, miracles and surprising stories are throughout Peace School, from Creation through Revelation, and this specific story is part of the MYF 4 year cycle when we read through John.
