Six stone pots, each containing 2 or 3 ferkins or
20 - 30 gallons of water. Jesus, made 150 gallons
of wine, a good average, give more than take probably.
The Governor of the wedding noted the good wine
was served last.

The Bible does not note the size of the wedding
feast. BUT, it seems there was a lot of wine.
Adding the wedding hosts wine, with that made
by Jesus. You take a 750. ml bottle and the amount
produced by Jesus. You are talking about 800
bottles of wine, a good average number, give
probably more than take. [ Some wedding, with
very happy guests, I would surmise ].

Ferkins fer kin
Of course, the only reason He was so concerned that the wine not run out was that it was His wedding to Mary Magdalene. Why else would the wedding planner turn to His mother to to tell her about the wine situation?
It was not that he expected a miracle from Jesus, since this was His first public miracle. Who knew He could solve the problem so easily?
