And both Jesus was called, and his disciples - There are several remarkable circumstances here.
1. This was probably the first Christian wedding that was ever in the world.
2. The great Author of the Christian religion, with his disciples, (probably then only four or five in number, see John 1:37, etc.), were invited to it.

I am afraid we may search long, before we find a marriage conducted on such principles as this appears to have been, even among those who make more than a common profession of the religion of Christ.
