    God created us. He wrote us what we are to do in this world. He put the Bible in front of us to help us in any situation. Any trail we go in is putting us in the fire to toughen us. We either listen to the evilness and make it harder on us, or we turn to Him in prayer to help us through it. Always opposite of the world. No mankind can hurt me...for my God is close by my side.Protecting!

    Voddie Baucham talks about how this wasn t a hasty or uncontrollable anger. Jesus took the time to make this scourge, probably having to find the necessary parts then make it.

    This really speaks to me
  • Kalyani Davidar
    The incident at the wedding at Cana, clearly reveals through Mary , that Jesus is the miracle-worker because she exhorts the helpers to go to Jesus and do as He instructs them to. And His venting His wrath against those who have turned the Lord's house into a trading centre is a warning to all those who today, use sanctified premises for monetary gains, or the Word as a tool for lucrative purposes
  • Alex
    Jesus wd not commit himself to any man b/c he knew what was in man and needed not that anyman should testify of man v 24

    WE ARE THE TEMPLE, CAST OUT THAT WHICH DOES NOT BELONG
  • Nana Darko
    Jesus was angry because the people were buying and selling. The same thing is still happening in our days. As Christians, we should stop selling holy water, anointing oil and preaching that makes people jump from their seats. These transactions in the house of God do not promote anything spiritually to us. We should allow the temple of God to serve its intended purpose.
  • BSP
    Verse 21~Jesus referred to his body as a temple. Jesus was holy and was a perfect man so this is a fitting representation.
  • Servant of God
    Destroy this temple and in 3 days I will raise it up. The testimony which convicted Jesus to death by crucifiction. But he would not commit to them which believed on him for he knew what was in man. That is that he will die in his sin. What Jesus commits to is God, his father, and nothing else, for everything else is of the Devil, which is sin. It is an either/or dilemma. Mortality/eternity,
  • Eutychus
    Jesus built His church, which today is the sole Temple of God. He was incensed enough to drive the buyers and sellers (Luke 19:45) out of the temple of that day...how must he view buying and selling in his church, the Temple of our day? We pay preachers, who are selling what they know to us. "And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought"
  • Elisha
    i know the scriptures by heart about god of saying the memory verse of John 3:16 for god so love the world that he gave the sins but not perish
  • A disciple
    Mary didn't know that it wasn't her place to tell the Lord what to do! Mary was in need of the Saviour as much as anyone else. She was blessed in that she was chosen to give birth to the Anointed come in the flesh; but she was nothing more! Jesus is the ONE who is to be worshiped, not Mary! Jesus was severing their parent /child relationship, and setting Mary within her bounds; even so He granted.
  • Servant of God
    Water-wine, the first of the great miracles of Jesus, reluctant but acceded to Mary's orchestration (for she alone knew at that time)to reveal the purposes of God, that he had been sent by the Father in heaven, too whom Jesus was in communion with, to demonstrate by word and deed on earth the truth that God is all powerful in heaven and on earth, that we ought to worship as Jesus worships, Amen

    Sometimes you can be so heavenly pious,that you're no earthly good. Mary once pondered those things in her heart; now she's possibly wanting to publish the diety of Christ, beautiful. Notice in 3:9 It was the ruler who didn't know where it (the miracle) came from, yet the servants that drew the water knew. It is not the high minded that can see or hear God, but the obedient servant. ITimothy 6:4
  • A disciple
    Kevin; The Jews demand a sign; and as Jesus always said to them, in sometimes different ways but essentially the same thing: There will NO SIGN be given them, but the sign of His death and resurrection.
  • Kevin
    John 2:19 Since Jesus is talking about Himself, is He telling the Jews to destroy Him or did He mean "should I be destroyed"?
  • Honey
    Humans today try to justify their actions by twisting the Lord's holy words to make an excuse for their actions instead of wanting to understand what he is trying to teach us through his scriptures. Remember, man should not try to add nor twist God's words because there will be a price to pay if you do. Mediate on those thoughts. Don't get caught up in the things of this world. Be Blessed!
  • Rachel
    This verse is about obedience then and for us today; "Whatsoever He saith, do it."
    This is one of the most profound verses in scripture. It's believed to be the first public statement from His mother's lips in support of His diety. It's not about the wine as much as it is about obedience. Thank you.
  • A disciple
    Charlotte; Wine has always what it is! Haven't you read how Noah got drunk? Wine is not a sin, nor any drink, in and of itself; but the drunkard is the sinner: if someone can drink with a good conscience toward God and his neighbor, and not use it for debauchery and excess! As Saints of Jesus we are not forbidden to drink wine or liquor of any kind, if it be with moderation and respect for others.
  • Charlotte
    I believe the wine today is very different from wine in Jesus' day. Back in Jesus day there was no refrigeration system so wine and water was there was to drink. Wine in Jesus' day was not fermented as it is today. Trying to use the Bible to justify consuming alcoholic beverages to get drunk is just wrong/sin.
  • A disciple
    S Green; If you are scandalized by drinking wine, and if YOU get drunk that easy and are afraid of losing control, then by all means, DON'T DO IT, don't drink wine! But the Scriptures don't say that Jesus turned water into fruit juice, but into wine, "which maketh glad the heart of man." It was a miracle of blessing of the poor representing the NEW WINE of the Glad Tidings, to start His Ministry!
  • S Green
    The same Greek word "oikos" is used for grapes and grape juice wine vinegar and alcoholic wine and are all translated as "wine". We know that Jesus never sinned and that drunkeness is a sin therefore we can conclude that the kind of wine that Jesus miraculously made was not an alcoholic kind. Also it did not say the guests were drunk but that they had drunk. Past tense of drink
  • Ray321
    John 2:24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, Jesus knows our hearts.
