    Whatever He says do it.Doing is action.. It does not need any reasoning or questioning.Its only to do it.Thats obedience to the commandment of the word of The Almighty God in Jesus The Christ.
  • Jean on John 2
    Jesus performed this miraculous signs to fulfill what is written and to convey men that He is the son of God..
  • Ayana on John 2
    Well Most of John I like so it 's pretty good
  • Mike D on John 2:15
    Here we see Jesus taking the time to make a scourge probably from the cords that were laying on the floor from the animals being brought in. This is a deliberate action on Jesus 's part. You can see him as takes the time while the zeal for His Father 's house is being marred. This is a different side of Jesus that many people fail to see. We often talk about the love of Jesus and fail to His Righteous indignation. They are about to experience this in the next verse.
  • Mike D on John 2:14
    With everything in context you would have to assume that Jesus isn 't well known at this point at least to the money changers. This is early in his ministry and they just left Capernaum where he did his first miracle. That 's about to change. This verse states he found those that sold oxen and sheep and doves and changers of money sitting in the temple. The selling of those things wasn 't wrong, nor was the money exchanging going on so far as they weren 't merchandising the people. It was where they were doing it, in the temple of God that was the problem.
  • Mike D on John 2:13
    It 's no surprise that we see Jesus attending the Passover, he had been doing that since his youth. What is surprising is what will happen in the next verse. For many the Jewish faith was corrupt and mechanical. Scandal had over taken the process with the money changers cheating the people as they brought their different currencies and would have to exchange for the currency used in Jerusalem. Along with that the people often brought good sacrifices that were refused and would have to buy another at outrages price. This is the setting for what will happen

  • JaDarius Brown on John 2
    It was very helpful.!!!!
  • Mary on John 2
    Jesus can perform miracle s in the life of whoever believes in His name.
  • Princess on John 2
    That God can do all things if we just believe.
  • Becky on John 2:9
    This is symbolic of the fact that the bridegroom Jesus was giving to his church his bride the finest wine his blood for cleansing and this occasion marks the beginning of his gift.
  • Becky on John 2:4
    Mary mentioned it in passing.She didn 't ask for him to fix it. Jesus turned to her and made the point that his time had not yet come as an announcement that it was about to. Mary recognized her error, so she put it in God 's hands, she even gave him her servants because by her faith she realized all she had to do was put everything in God 's hands to do what he thought was best in his own time.
  • Ronald green on John 2
    God is god to believe In him and trust ln him
  • Rachael on John 2:16
    The Temple represents the Building Church structure and also our Bodies. The need to honour God and not to desecrete it. The church should not be turned into a market place Our bodies should not be used as a platform for exchange i.e. Prostitution, Slavery, Sexual perversion etc.
  • Chris Martson on John 2
    Who is it that setteth the sun in its place and maketh it to shine?,or thee earth in its course and the rotation thereof? Is it not I sayeth the Lord? and is it not I that shall be exalted in all thee earth?.
  • Marie on John 2
    Even the smallest thing in life, we need to include GOD on it. So many times we call him out when things get out of hand. We need to exalt and cry out to him all times. God wants us to depend on him.
  • EMETO FRANKLIN on John 2
    JOHN 2 1 5 mary knew that JESUS was capable making provision for another wine that was why she told the servants "whatever he saith unto you do it, and HE that is not associated with impossibility eventually did it.
  • Lillie McZeal on John 2:19
    It helps us to know that there are going to be some things that happen to us, or to others that we won 't understand. Sometimes, he won 't reveal the answer at that time. Just trust him.
  • Beneditte Idiagbonya on John 2
    This is awesome Jesus first miracle his mother was present, She knows her son 's ability, who he is and what he can do. Glory to God. I pray that we as parent know in depth about our children. His disciples believed on him. Awesome.
  • Jerry conn on John 2
    Well Jesus never dishonored his father or mother first of all because he was without sin.. I believe that this poticular scripture Jesus speaks to the flesh of his mother.... Not being disrespectful to her.. Think about this if Jesus was your son and you knew who he was wouldn 't you want to show Him off.... Kinda like look at my child he got a A or is graduating from college or has a awesome ability to do this or that... Jesus simply replies and says woman being interpreted as flesh gratification to exault her Son. This ant the time yet.. God has a time and a place for everything and his ways are higher than ours.. But she simply says "just do what he says " if we could all do this then our barren and stagnet waters in our spirits will be filled with the new wine... And our later days will be greater than before..just do what he says.
  • Earl on John 2:4
    It seems to me that although both she and Jesus knew he was a miracle worker, they both knew this instance was a minor situation and need not have been brought to him. She knew he could fix it. and as did he too. But do we? So often we deem our own problems beneath the care of Jesus, as if our situation were not worthy of his concern. His Mother knew him well enough to know, hem can fix anything. No task is too trivial no job too small, no problem to simple that we make a decision to abort our praying to God about it. He actually does care about the trivialities and the mundane occurrences of our lives.Are we to Judge what he can and cannot handle? Let him be the judge of it.
  • Kgethisi Molefe on John 2
    Jesus is the solution for our probles if it wasn t about Jesus wine was finish for good bt because of Jesus was there problem solved We have always invite Jesus in all our situation because He is our helper and our adviser Thanks you Jesus in my life
  • Don on John 2:5
    To me this should be the most important message of the church today We have watered down the gospel in many of our church bodies and are not focussing on John s statement that is What ever His word says we are to do it chriistains are not to compromise
  • Robert on John 2
    And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,

    14And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:

    15And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;

    16And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise

  • Kelly on John 2:11
    This is a lesson on what this world is like, and how darkness is over us that we don't understand we are slaves, the living dead in need of light. He had power simply because he understood what was going on and doing these manifestations helped them cross over. You know what it's like when you don't get something and can't seem to make out what a person is saying and then the lights go and and it was in front of you all the time, this is what the world is like, being held in a dream like state and when you look at tv and see the players imagine them all in the dark, doing what we always do and then imagine Christ waking them up and they see themselves for the first time... at that moment, never be ashamed for beauty is in the eye of the beholder and he be holdeth you in beauty.
  • Joe on John 2
    T Bennett,
    It is by no means disrespectful. In fact the opposite is true. First, “What have I to do with thee?” Is like saying what do you want me to do? Second, when Jesus refers to Mary as “Woman” the Greek translation does not denote any disrespect. In John 19:26 while Jesus was on the cross he was deeply concerned about her sadness and grief, yet again he refers to Mary as “Woman”. He loves her as he does all of us. There was certainly no disrespect.
