Did Jesus drink wine or grape juice?

Did Jesus drink wine or grape juice?

What do you think?

I ask this question because there are some Christian  sects that do not allow their members  to drink wine - or any alcohol.

He “turned” water to wine. Doesn’t mean he drank it himself, but it clearly shows he was fine with others drinking alcohol.

Wine is grape juice, except that it's been fermented. I see no reason why Christian sects that abstain from alcohol can't make the substitution. I certainly don't know of any biblical injunction against it.

I think he also drank wine there himself at the wedding.
It would have been very impolite not to do so.

He really had no choice BUT to drink wine. Left to its own devices, grape juice ferments itself into wine very quickly. The pasteurization process that stops fermentation wasn’t invented until the 1860s.

Christians need to find ways to make other people more miserable. The most popular way to do this is to make rules the rulemakers will immediately proceed to ignore.

Don't care what you call it, when it is claimed to be important, he drank magic.

Is there such a thing as magic to drink?

Maybe Jesus did not exist. Therefore a moot point.
