In the beginning there was Creation with the appearance of age…..6 days:

Jesus first miracle, creation with the appearance of age. 6 water pots into 6 wine pots. It was 'the best wine' and good wine is aged wine.

That's a good thought. Is that original with you or someone else?

yeah, i'm curious, too. definitely insightful to notice the six jars and six days, because the theme of new creation runs all the way through John--hence, Jesus appears to Mary Magdalene after his resurrection in....**a garden!** and she mistakes him (but is really, at the deepest level, right!) for the gardener; Jesus *breathes* the Spirit on the disciples and appears to them on *the first day of the week*--the first day of new creation.

Hey mister AP, we just talked about your comments in church yesterday!

This guy mentioned it in a creation video I watched a little while ago. His push was for creation with the apprearence of age, a literal 6 days. And I found it very insightful. and yeah AP that is interesting about the new creation theme in John.

hmm...now i'm a little dubious about it pointing to "creation with age" and seeing the biblical motif pointing to six literal days... ah well. still a good thought.

I think the earth was made in 7.79 days.

I'm a liar and my pants are on fire. haa...and no.

Our conclusion as to the "garden motif" was that God has an amazing way of connecting His story, and it is more than creative. Something like that...I'm probably not doing it justice.

My great grandpa used to make wine, but I'm told it tasted more like vinager because he wasn't too good at it.
