Series: Behold the Lamb
Ernest L. Easley
As we continue to BEHOLD THE LAMB... join me this morning in the gospel according to John. I want to show you from John chapter 2 that the Lord Jesus Christ specializes in miracles! Jesus turns failure into success... tragedy into triumph... tears into pearls... and yes... even water into wine.
