“He Turned the Water Into Wine” was a song Cash wrote in 1968. If you have heard the song, you’ll know that this story of turning water into wine was actually found in the Bible. The story of Jesus turning water into wine is found in John 2:1-11.
“And the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside.” – John 2: 9
Finding Inspiration in Israel
Cash was not only inspired by a certain passage in the Bible. He said that the inspiration of the song came to him when he was on tour in Israel. He visited the place where Jesus turned water into wine. In that place, there was a church where Cash heard the sound of the water, and it was a magnificent experience according to him. After leaving the place, he kept whispering to himself He turned the water into wine. Soon, Cash finished writing the song.
“And I said under my breath, ‘He turned the water into wine,’ of all things. On the way to Tiberius in the car in the next few minutes I wrote this song.”
