‘Son, go out today to work in my vineyard.’

Matthew 21:28-32

²⁸ But how does it seem to you? A certain man had two sons. And approaching the first, he said: ‘Son, go out today to work in my vineyard.’ ²⁹ And responding, he said, ‘I am not willing.’ But afterwards, being moved by repentance, he went. ³⁰ And approaching the other, he spoke similarly. And answering, he said, ‘I am going, lord.’ And he did not go. ³¹ Which of the two did the will of the father?” They said to him, “The first.” Jesus said to them: “Amen I say to you, that tax collectors and prostitutes shall precede you, into the kingdom of God. ³² For John came to you in the way of justice, and you did not believe him. But the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him. Yet even after seeing this, you did not repent, so as to believe him.

Christ changes water into wine.

John 2:1-11

¹ And on the third day, a wedding was held in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. ² Now Jesus was also invited to the wedding, with his disciples. ³ And when the wine was failing, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” ⁴ And Jesus said to her: “What is that to me and to you, woman? My hour has not yet arrived.” ⁵ His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” ⁶ Now in that place, there were six stone water jars, for the purification ritual of the Jews, containing two or three measures each. ⁷ Jesus said to them, “Fill the water jars with water.” And they filled them to the very top. ⁸ And Jesus said to them, “Now draw from it, and carry it to the chief steward of the feast.” And they took it to him. ⁹ Then, when the chief steward had tasted the water made into wine, since he did not know where it was from, for only the servants who had drawn the water knew, the chief steward called the groom, ¹⁰ and he said to him: “Every man offers the good wine first, and then, when they have become inebriated, he offers what is worse. But you have kept the good wine until now.” ¹¹ This was the beginning of the signs that Jesus accomplished in Cana of Galilee, and it manifested his glory, and his disciples believed in him.
