What was Jesus First Miracle?

The story of Jesus' first miracle is found in the gospel of John, chapter 2. The wedding scene is the first time that we hear about Jesus changing water into wine during his ministry (John 2:1-11). The Greek word translated as "belief" in the New Testament comes from two words that mean "to be persuaded." This miracle has far-reaching implications for what it means to believe in Jesus.

Is Cursing a Sin? The Answer May Surprise You

My oldest son has just now entered High school and recently he had a discussion centered around cussing. For him, as he has gotten older, there has been months (if not years) where he wouldnÔÇÖt hear a cuss word. Now, the opposite seems true. He cannot go a day without hearing one. For this reason I sought to look for Biblical answers to a very common question, and today I want to share that knowledge.
