Water into blood / wine

I have preached an John 2, the wedding at Cana a few times. I have heard a number of sermons on it. I have read and listened to quite a bit about it.

It was in the Day One Travel Guide to Israel, that I can across the idea, new to me, I think, that there is a particular contrast between Jesus and Moses here:

Moses' first public miracle was to turn the water of the Nile into blood in judgement on the people.

Jesus' first sign was to turn water into wine for people's blessing.

The other New Moses stuff in the context of course makes seeing the connection more likely.
