Please note that you are reading things into the text _that are not
there_ to get your desired parallel.
Nowhere in the Cana story does Mary ask to see /anything/, let alone
water turned into wine, nor does John say that at the crucifixion Jesus
blood turned to water. What comes forth from Jesus' side according to
John is blood AND water. Moreover, is there any noted declaration of
equivalence in GJohn between water/wine and blood as there is in the
Before you make any more such claims as you made above, I suggest that
you actually pay closer attention to what the text of John actually says
than you apparently now do.
