The Wedding at Cana
1And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
2And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus said to him, They have no wine.
4Jesus said to her, Woman, what have I to do with you? my hour is not yet come.
5His mother said to the servants, Whatever he said to you, do it.
6And there were set there six water pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
7Jesus said to them, Fill the water pots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
8And he said to them, Draw out now, and bear to the governor of the feast. And they bore it.
9When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not from where it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10And said to him, Every man at the beginning does set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but you have kept the good wine until now.
11This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
Jesus Cleanses the Temple
(Matthew 21:12-17; Mark 11:15-19; Luke 19:45-48)
12After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brothers, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.
13And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15And when he had made a whip 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;
16And said to them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
17And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of your house has eaten me up.
18Then answered the Jews and said to him, What sign show you to us, seeing that you do these things?
19Jesus answered and said to them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
20Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and will you raise it up in three days?
21But he spoke of the temple of his body.
22When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this to them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
23Now 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.
24But Jesus did not commit himself to them, because he knew all men,
25And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.
