Miracles of John’s Gospel

Note: Phil Russell has pointed out an interesting suggestion by Trench  (1894) on the seven miracles of John’s Gospel, reported as a footnote in Ada Habershon’s book on Miracles, pg 194. Any thoughts? Does it work?

A. 1. Water into Wine
Setting- meal, by the Lord at the hand of others.

B. 2. Raising up of the nobleman’s son
