1Three days later, there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.
2Jesus and his disciples were invited to the wedding.
3When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.”
4Jesus said to her, “Woman, why do you come to me? My time has not yet come.”
5His mother said to the servants, “Whatever he says to you, do it.”
6Now there were six stone water pots there used for the Jewish ceremonial washing, each containing two to three metretes.
7Jesus said to them, “Fill the water pots with water.” So they filled them up to the brim.
8Then he told the servants, “Take some out now and take it to the head waiter.” So they did.
9The head waiter tasted the water that had become wine, but he did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew). Then he called the bridegroom
10and said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first and then the cheaper wine when they are drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now.”
11This first sign Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and he revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.
12After this Jesus, his mother, his brothers, and his disciples went down to Capernaum and they stayed there for a few days.
13Now the Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14He found sellers of oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money changers were sitting there.
15So he made a whip of cords and drove all of them out from the temple, including both the sheep and the oxen. He scattered the coins of the money changers and overthrew their tables.
16To the pigeon sellers he said, “Take these things away from here. Stop making the house of my Father a marketplace.”
17His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house will consume me.”
18Then the Jewish authorities responded and said to him, “What sign will you show us, since you are doing these things?”

19Jesus replied, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
20Then the Jewish authorities said, “This temple was built in forty-six years, and you will raise it up in three days?”
21However, he was speaking about the temple of his body.
22After he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he said this, and they believed the scripture and this statement that Jesus had spoken.
23Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover festival, many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he did.
24But Jesus did not trust in them because he knew them all,
25because he did not need anyone to testify to him about man, for he knew what was in man.
