Jesus Changes Water to Wine...
And on the third day there was a wedding in Qanah of Galil, and the mother of Yahushua was there.
Cana (Qanah) means "place of reeds"
And both Yahushua and His taught ones were invited to the wedding.
And when they were short of wine, the mother of Yahushua said to Him, 'They have no wine.'
Yahushua said to her, 'Woman, what is that to Me and to you? My hour has not yet come.'
His mother said to the servants, 'Do whatever He says to you.'
And there were six stone water-jugs standing there, according to the mode of cleansing of the Yehudim, each holding two or three measures.
Yahushua said to them, 'Fill the water-jugs with water.' And they filled them up to the brim.
And He said to them, 'Now draw out and take it to the master of the feast.' So they took it.
But when the master of the feast had tasted the water that had become wine, and did not know where it came from - though the servants who had drawn the water knew - the master of the feast called the bridegroom,
and said to him, 'Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when they have drunk, then that which is poorer. You have kept the good wine until now.'
This, the beginning of the signs, Yahushua did in Qanah of Galil, and manifested His esteem. And His taught ones believed in Him.
Jesus Clears the Temple...
After this He went down to Kephar Nahum, He and His mother, and His brothers, and His taught ones. And there they stayed not many days.
Capernaum (Kephar Nahum) means "village of comfort")
And the Passover of the Yehudim was near, and Yahushua went up to Yerushalayim.
And He found in the Set-apart Place those selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers sitting.
And having made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the Set-apart Place, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the moneychangers' coins and overturned the tables.
And He said to those selling doves, 'Take these away! Do not make the house of My Father a house of merchandise!'
And His taught ones remembered that it was written, 'The ardour for Your house has eaten Me up.'
And the Yehudim answered and said to Him, 'What sign do You show to us, since You are doing these?'
Yahushua answered and said to them, `Destroy this Dwelling Place, and in three days I shall raise it.`
Then the Yehudim said, `It took forty-six years to build this Dwelling Place, and You are going to raise it in three days?`
But He spoke about the Dwelling Place of His body.
So, when He was raised from the dead, His taught ones remembered that He said this to them. And they believed the Scripture and the word which Yahushua had said.
And when He was in Yerushalayim at the Passover, at the festival, many believed in His Name when they saw the signs which He was doing.
But Yahushua was not entrusting Himself to them, because He knew all men,
and had no need that anyone should witness of man, for He knew what was in man.
