John 2

1And the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2Now Jesus also was invited, with his disciples, to the wedding. 3And when the wine ran out, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no wine." 4Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does that have to do with you and me? My hour has not yet come." 5His mother said to the servants, "Whatever he says to you, do it." 6Now there were six stone water jars set there after the Jewish manner of purifying, containing two or three metretes apiece. 7Jesus said to them, "Fill the water jars with water." They filled them up to the brim. 8He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the ruler of the feast." So they took it. 9When the ruler of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the ruler of the feast called the bridegroom, 10and said to him, "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." 11This beginning of his signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him. 12After this, he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, his brothers, and his disciples; and they stayed there a few days. 13The Jewish Passover was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14And he found in the temple those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves, and the money changers sitting. 15And he made a whip of cords, and threw all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changers' money, and overthrew their tables. 16To those who sold the doves, he said, "Take these things out of here. Do not make my Father's house a marketplace." 17His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for your house will consume me." 18The Jewish leaders therefore answered him, "What sign do you show us, seeing that you do these things?" 19Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." 20The Jewish leaders therefore said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?" 21But he spoke of the temple of his body. 22When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he said this, and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. 23Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in his name, after seeing his signs which he did. 24But Jesus did not trust himself to them, because he knew everyone, 25and because he did not need anyone to testify concerning man; for he himself knew what was in man.
