The Wedding at Cana

1And on the third day a wedding took place in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there, 2and also Jesus was invited, and His disciples, to the wedding. 3And of the wine having been deficient, the mother of Jesus says to Him, “They have no wine.”

4And Jesus says to her, “What to Me and to you, woman? My hour is not yet come.”

5His mother says to the servants, “Whatever He may say to you, do it.”

6Now there were six stone water jars standing there, according to the purification of the Jews, having space for two or three metretae.a 7Jesus says to them, “Fill the jars with water.”

And they filled them up to the brim.

8And He says to them, “Now draw some out and carry it to the master of the feast.”

And they carried it. 9And when the master of the feast had tasted the water having become wine, and did not know from where it is—but the servants having drawn the water knew—the master of the feast calls the bridegroom, 10and he says to him, “Every man first sets out the good wine, and when they might have drunk freely, the inferior; you have kept the good wine until now.”

11This was the beginning of the signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and He revealed His glory. And His disciples believed in Him.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple
(Matthew 21:12-17; Mark 11:15-19; Luke 19:45-48)

12After this, He went down to Capernaum, He and His mother, and His brothers, and His disciples, and they stayed there not many days.

13And the Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14And He found in the temple those selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers sitting. 15And having made a whip of cords, He drove out all from the temple, both sheep and oxen; and He poured out the coins of the money changers and overthrew the tables. 16And to those selling doves He said, “Take these things from here! Do not make My Father’s house a house of trade.”

17His disciples remembered that it is written: “The zeal of Your house will consume Me.”b

18So the Jews answered and said to Him, “What sign do You show to us that You do these things?”

19Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

20Therefore the Jews said, “This temple was built in forty and six years, and You will raise it up in three days?”

21But He was speaking concerning the temple of His body. 22Therefore when He was raised up out from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

23And when He was in Jerusalem in the Passover, in the Feast, many believed in His name, beholding His signs that He was doing. 24But Jesus on His part did not did entrust Himself to them, because of His knowing all men, 25and because He had no need that anyone should testify concerning man, for He Himself knew what was in man.
