John 2

Jesus turns water into wine
On the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee. The mother of Jesus was there; 2 Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the marriage. 3 When they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to him: They have no wine! 4 Jesus said to her: Woman, what have I to do with you? My hour is not yet come. 5 His mother said to the servants: Whatever he commands you, do it! 6 Nearby there were six stone waterpots, placed there for the Jewish custom of purifications, each holding 75 to 115 litres. 7 Jesus said to them: Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them to the brim.
   8 And he said to them: Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast. So they took it. 9 When the master of the feast tasted the water which had now become wine, and not knowing where it came from (but the servants that had drawn the water knew), he called to the bridegroom, 10 and said to him: Everyone serves good wine first, and when all have drunk freely, serves something inferior. But you have kept the good wine until now!
   11 This, the first of his signs, Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, thereby revealing his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

Jesus purges the temple
   12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he and his mother and brothers and disciples; and there they stayed for a few days. 13 The Passover of the Jews was at that time; and Jesus went to Jerusalem. 14 And he found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers sitting at their tables. 15 He made a whip out of cords and drove them all, with the sheep and oxen, out of the temple; and he poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16 To them that sold the doves he said: Take these things away! Do not make my Father's house a market. 17 His disciples remembered that it was written: Zeal for Your house shall consume me. 18 The Jews therefore answered and said to him: What sign will you show us, seeing you do these things? 19 Jesus answered and said to them: Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up. 20 The Jews replied: Forty six years was this temple in building, and will you raise it up in three days? 21 But he spoke of the temple of his body. 22 When he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he spoke this, and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had spoken.
   23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in his name when they saw the signs which he did. 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he understood mankind, 25 and because he did not need any testimony concerning himself from any human being. For he understood what was in man.


2:25 Understood- Jesus knew how fickle people are, how quickly they change. His understanding of humanity is because He Himself was human.
