Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1ON the third day there was a marriage feast in Cana, a city of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there. 2And Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the marriage feast. 3And when the wine decreased, his mother said to Jesus, They have no wine. 4Jesus said to her, What is it to me and to you, woman? my turn has not yet come. 5His mother said to the helpers, Whatever he tells you, do it. 6And there were six stone jars placed there for the purification of the Jews, which could hold several gallons each. 7Jesus said to them, Fill the jars with water; and they filled them up to the brim. 8Then he said to them, Draw out now, and bring it to the chief guest of the feast. And they brought it. 9And when the chief guest tasted the water that had become wine, he did not know whence it had come; but the helpers knew, who had drawn the water. Then the chief guest called the bridegroom 10And said to him, Every man at first brings the best wine; and when they have drunk, then that which is weak; but you have kept the best wine until now. 11This is the first miracle which Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee, and he showed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

12After this he went down to Capernaum, he and his mother and his brothers, and his disciples; and they remained there a few days.

13And the Jewish passover was nearing; so Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14And he found in the temple those who were buying oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers sitting. 15And he made a whip of cord, and drove them all out of the temple, even the sheep and the oxen and the money changers; and he threw out their exchange money, and upset their trays; 16And to those who sold doves he said, Take these away from here; do not make my Father’s house a house of trading. 17And his disciples remembered that it is written, The zeal for your house has given me courage. 18The Jews answered and said to him, What sign do you show us, that you are doing these things? 19Jesus answered and said to them, Tear down this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20The Jews said to him, It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days? 21But he spoke concerning the temple of his body. 22When he rose from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the scriptures and the word which Jesus had said.

23Now when Jesus was in Jerusalem at the passover, during the feast, a great many believed in him, because they saw the miracles which he did. 24But Jesus did not entrust himself to them, because he understood every man. 25And he needed no man to testify to him concerning any man; for he knew well what was in man.
