The future perfect of the wording from the master of ceremony to my understanding is: "the water that had been born to become wine"
Living water in John represents the Holy SpiritWine represents Christ's blood.So taking the changing water into wine as symbolic just doesn't make sense in the text.John's gospel is highly theological and if there is anything symbolically meaningful in an event that John describes, he points it out. Here John hardly adds any commentary or do we hear a lengthy explanation from Jesus.I have no problem with seeing a deeper meaning in a recorded event, but when someone uses this to be able to deny the miracle, then I think there is a deeper issue. I.e. disbeliefe in miracles. And I sense that this is really where you are coming from or am I wrong?
