Good essay, I think he gets most of it right. But . . . he doesn’t solve the mystery in it for me. What did Christ mean when he said “my hour has not yet come” and yet he performed the miracle? I have some ideas but I want others opinions. I think that refusing his mother would have been sinful, so Christ did not refuse her, even though his hour had not yet come. I think that it means that God’s plan is not as rigid as some might think, that a request, a prayer can alter God’s plan. But . . . I don’t hold these opinions strongly. Interested in other views.
It was a good essay yes; I hope someone has some insights into your question, I’d like to hear a good analysis too.
