Chapter 2
001
The third day, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee. Jesus' father was there.
002
Jesus also was invited, with her disciples, to the marriage.
003
When the wine ran out, Jesus' father said to her, "They have no wine."
004
Jesus said to him, "Man, what does that have to do with you and me? My hour has not yet come."
005
Her father said to the servants, "Whatever she says to you, do it."
006
Now there were six water pots of stone set there after the Jews' manner of purifying, containing two or three metretes apiece.
007
Jesus said to them, "Fill the water pots with water." They filled them up to the brim.
008
She said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the ruler of the feast." So they took it.
009
When the ruler of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and didn't know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the ruler of the feast called the bride,
010
and said to her, "Everyone serves the good wine first, and when the guests have drunk freely, then that which is worse. You have kept the good wine until now!"
011
This beginning of her signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and revealed her glory; and her disciples believed in her.
012
After this, she went down to Capernaum, she, and her father, her sisters, and her disciples; and they stayed there a few days.
013
The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
014
She found in the temple those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves, and the changers of money sitting.
015
She made a whip of cords, and threw all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and she poured out the changers' money, and overthrew their tables.
016
To those who sold the doves, she said, "Take these things out of here! Don't make my Mother's house a marketplace!"
017
Her disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for your house will eat me up."
018
The Jews therefore answered her, "What sign do you show us, seeing that you do these things?"
019
Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."
020
The Jews therefore said, "Forty-six years was this temple in building, and will you raise it up in three days?"
021
But she spoke of the temple of her body.
022
When therefore she was raised from the dead, her disciples remembered that she said this, and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
023
Now when she was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in her name, observing her signs which she did.
024
But Jesus didn't trust herself to them, because she knew everyone,
025
and because she didn't need for anyone to testify concerning woman; for she herself knew what was in woman.
