Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for John 2:2


2:2 Jesus and his disciples were invited to the marriage - Christ does not take away human society, but sanctifies it. Water might have quenched thirst; yet our Lord allows wine; especially at a festival solemnity. Such was his facility in drawing his disciples at first, who were afterward to go through rougher ways.

    John W."On the 3rd day,meaning what?John 1:29"The next day John" this is day 1.V.35 Again the next day" 29 and 35 are the same day. V.43"The day following Jesus traveled to Galilee. Which is the 2nd day. John 2:1"The 3rd day there was a marriage" Jesus was "called",an invitation.It does not say that Mary told them He could make wine."Protecting her"no evidence of it.You speculate,Proverbs3:5
  • A disciple
    Jesus speaking to His mother in that way, was a mild rebuff to her meddling and trying to tell Him what to do; as if He were still in their house. The Eternal Son of God and Saviour coming in flesh into the world, and commencing His service for our redemption, does not need His mother to tell Him what to do! Now it was time for Mary and the rest of the family to follow Him, by obedience of faith.
  • John R. Whiteside
    I think Jesus was protecting Mary by not calling her, "Mother." He knew what was coming and didn't want her to be hurt or possibly used to interfere with His Father's business. The story begins saying, "And the third day" meaning what? Maybe it was on the 3rd day of the marriage, out of wine, He was called because Mary told them He could make more wine. Obvious a lot had already been drank.
  • Joe M
    When Jesus spoke to His mother He was speaking of His Crucifixion. His body would be pressed and He would release the Spirit. The six pots represent man. Water is our authority. This world has drained us. Filling the pots is The Gospel. We accept Christ then when life draws out from us we release Spirit and not water. This makes us peculiar to the world.
  • Irene123
    "And needed not that any should testify of man ... "; Jesus was speaking of His physical body, the man and not the Spirit of God in Him. He knew there were people that would proclaim the 'man' Jesus only and leave out the Spirit of God - just as they do with 'great evangelists' today.
