- ¶ ON the third day there was a marriage feast in Cana, a city of Galilee;
and the mother of Jesus was there.
- And Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the marriage feast.
- And when the wine ran low, his mother said to Jesus, They have no wine.
- Jesus said to her, What is it to me and to you, woman?
My turn has not yet come.
- His mother said to the helpers, Whatever he tells you, do it.
- And there were Six stone jars placed there for the purification of the Jews, which could hold several gallons each.
- Jesus said to them, Fill the jars with water;
and they filled them up to the brim.
- Then he said to them, Draw out now and bring it to the chief guest of the feast.
And they brought it.
- And 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
- And said to him, Every man at the first brings the best wine;
and when they have drunk, then that which is weak;
but you have kept the best wine until now.
- This is the first miracle which Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee, and thus he showed his glory;
and his disciples believed in him.
- ¶ After this he went down to Capernaum, he and his mother and his brothers and his disciples;
and they remained there a few days.
- And the Jewish passover was nearing;
so Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
- And he found in the temple those who were buying oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers sitting.
- And 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;
- And to those who sold doves he said, Take these away from here;
do not make my Father’s house a house of trading.
- And his disciples remembered that it is written, The zeal for thy house has given me courage.
- The Jews answered, saying to him, What sign do you show us, that you are doing these things?
- Jesus answered, saying to them, Tear down this temple and in three days I will raise it up.
- The Jews said to him, It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?
- But he spoke concerning the temple of his body.
- When 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.
- ¶ Now 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.
- But Jesus did not entrust himself to them, because he understood every man.
- And he needed no man to testify to him concerning any man;
for he knew well what was in man.
