In Jn. 1, the words “In the beginning” and “The Word” and “Life” and “Light” and “Darkness” deliberately invoke our memory of Genesis 1, because our Creator is about to become our Redeemer. And so, John deliberately uses the imagery of God’s action in Creation to introduce the imagery of His action in Redemption and marital union with redeemed man. Hahn states: “The Old Covenant fashioned in the beginning is about to be renewed in a powerful new way. “v 14—“The word became flesh and ‘dwelt’ among us” (from the Greek for “tabernacled” among us).

Jesus uses six stone jars of water that were used for ceremonial washing (Take note that in Num. 19:11 12, ceremonial washing for uncleanness had to be done with water and had to take place on the third and seventh day).

Notice also in the miracle at Cana account in John 2, that Jesus associated providing wine with “His hour” (In Jn. 2:4—When Mary seemed to be asking him to provide wine for the guests, He replied, “My hour has not yet come”). When was Jesus’ “hour”? In John’s gospel, Jesus’ “hour” is the moment of His death on the Cross. Here, Mary’s request generates a symbolic down payment on that. He transforms water meant for the Jewish rites of purification. (It is very interesting to note that the term used in the Septuagint of that water in Numbers 19 is literally “baptizmois”).
