In Jewish tradition, people would use water to purify themselves before eating or drinking, especially at a wedding where ritual purity was important.

When the wine ran out, Jesus instructed the servants to fill the jars with water and miraculously turned it into wine, revealing his divine power and providing an abundance of wine for the wedding celebration.
