comment How to interpret John 2:10
In any case, there's no evidence that anyone was drunk in Cana. The narrative says no such thing. Rather, the ἀρχιτρίκλινος was merely repeating a well known maxim, that a person usually puts the choice wine out for people to drink at the beginning of a feast, and then later the mediocre wine, since people's taste is less discriminating by that point. But, in no way does his comment suggest that anyone was drunk at the wedding in Cana. I encourage you to read it with more care. Jesus had just turned the water into wine by the miracle. How then could anyone have been drunk already?

You can drink wine and not become intoxicated. Wine is scientifically proven to be a healthy beverage when consumed in moderation. And in Judaism, wine was an integral part of religious rituals (e.g., it was consumed during the Passover seder, on the Sabbath, and during a regular meal).

comment Are the 'vessels of wrath' in Romans 9:22 'prepared for' or are they 'preparing themselves for destruction'?
καταρτίζοντας in Matt. 4:21 is not middle voice!
