"The third day there was a marriage in Cana ...
and ... Jesus was called ... to the marriage."
What did Jesus do after his baptism?
(2:3-10) Jesus' first miracle was to turn water into wine.
(Good thing he didn't he turn the water into blood like his dad did in Exodus 7.)
Is it OK to drink alcohol?
What the Bible says about alcohol
(2:3) "When they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine."
(2:4) "Woman, what have I to do with thee?"
And his most blessed mother said unto him, "I'm your fucking
mother, you jerk." (Or words to that effect.)
How should parents be treated?
(2:5) "His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it."
(2:7) "Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them
up to the brim."
(2:9) "The water ... was made wine."
And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother
of Jesus was there:
|2:2 And both
Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
|2:3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have
Jesus saith unto her, Woman,
what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the
purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them
up to the brim.
And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the
feast. And they bare it.
When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and
knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the
governor of the feast called the bridegroom
And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine;
and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept
the good wine until now.||
(2:11-15) When did Jesus' temple tantrum occur?
(2:11) "This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana."
(2:12) "After this he went down to Capernaum."
(2:13) "Passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem."
(2:14) "And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money."
(2:15) "When he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple ... and poured out the changers' money,
and overthrew the tables."
This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested
forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
|2:12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his
brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.
And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
|2:14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the
changers of money sitting:
And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of
the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money,
and overthrew the tables;
And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my
Father's house an house of merchandise.||
And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house
hath eaten me up.||
Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us,
seeing that thou doest these things?||
Jesus answered and said
unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
(2:19-21) "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up ... He spake of the temple of his body."|
Jehovah's Witnesses deny the bodily resurrection of Jesus, saying instead that
he was raised as a "spirit creature." If so, then how could John say that "he
spake of the temple of his body?"
Who raised Jesus from the dead?
Did Jesus say, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will
raise it up"?
Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and
wilt thou rear it up in three days?
But he spake of the temple of his body.
When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that
he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word
which Jesus had said.
Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many
believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.||
But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,||
And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in
