I'm a retired firefighter that lived with the guys I worked with every third day for close to thirty years! One discussion (which most of the time turned out to be arguments )that we would have from time to time was on the subject of Christians drinking alcohol. I realize that back in Bible times that wine was a common drink but I also believe that it was not always alcohol but sometimes grape juice. When Jesus turned the water into wine I don't believe that it was an alcoholic drink simply because why would he make people that were at the marriage supper drunker than they already were if what they were drinking was an alcoholic wine to begin with? We all know the dangers and heart ache that alcohol can bring to a family and individuals! The way I see it is that it is impossible to get hooked on anything that you never try!!

Thank you Jack. I appreciated that clear explanation - sounds very plausible as minor textual (copyist) errors have been noted from time to time. Of course, these don't in any way take away from the veracity of Scripture, but it bears remembering that such small inconsistencies can appear, as in any writing/publication, that shouldn't warrant our complete rejection of the whole.
