People's Bible Notes for John 2:1


Joh 2:1 The First Miracle SUMMARY OF JOHN 2: The Marriage at Cana. The Water Made Wine. The Passover. Jesus at Jerusalem. The Temple Cleansed. The Resurrection Foretold. The third day. After the conversation with Nathanael. Immediately after it he departed into Galilee (Joh 1:43). A marriage in Cana. The site of Cana is not certainly known. Dr. Robinson, Giekie and other authorities place it at a ruin now called Kana, twelve miles north of Nazareth. The mother of Jesus was there. Reasons are suggested from the narrative that follows for believing that Mary was related to the family. As Joseph is never mentioned as living after Jesus entered upon his ministry, he is supposed to have died before this time.

    When you are speaker of the truth,though you will build enemies but People will want to know more
  • Juan Ramos for verse 1
    John 2:1 This scripture (and the third day there was a marriage) follows after the previous scripture, about angels descending and rising from haven and the end of the scripture end's with Mary Jesus mother was already there. It's showing the start and the end of the church age. (for a day is as thousand year's with the Lord). The servant's are the angel's obeying the word of GOD, the six water pots filled with water are the symbol of man being purified or washed by the Word of GOD. Then being filled by the new wine the Holy Spirit in the new covenant.
