John 2



This chapter showcases Jesus's transformative power at the wedding, his zeal for the sanctity of the temple, and his deep theological discussions, particularly with Nicodemus, emphasizing themes of belief, miracles, and spiritual rebirth.


  1. The Wedding at Cana (John 2:1-12): Jesus and his disciples attend a wedding in Cana. When the hosts run out of wine, at Mary's request, Jesus turns water into wine, revealing his miraculous power. This is considered the first of Jesus's signs, and it leads to an increase in the disciples' belief in him.
  2. Cleansing the Temple (John 2:13-25): Jesus goes to Jerusalem for the Passover and finds the temple filled with merchants and money changers. In a display of righteous anger, he overturns the tables, driving out those who had turned the house of prayer into a marketplace. When questioned, Jesus cryptically predicts his own death and resurrection.
