The Wedding at Cana
Jesus was at a wedding and they ran out of wine. Jesus asked the servants to fill some huge pitchers up with water and then he turned it to wine.
I've mentioned this before, but I suppose this is a fine time to bring it up again as we are at the beginning of another book. I am not terribly interested in miracle claims of Jesus, I am more interested in lessons one could learn from reading the bible. Therefore I won't necessarily have much to say about this kind of stuff.
Jesus Cleanses the Temple
Jesus went to the temple and threw out the money changers. He said that they shouldn't make his father's house a house of trade. They asked him what sign he gave for doing these things and he said to destroy the temple and he would rebuild it in 3 days. They said it took 46 years to build it, how could he do it in 3 day. But Jesus had been talking about the body and his resurrection.
I like the money changer bit, I like the idea that church should not be a place of profit. I also really like the fact that after Jesus speaks in riddle the author clarifies it by pointing out that he is talking about his body and not the literal temple. These things may seem obvious to some, but it is so much more clear and useful when it is spelled out like this.
Jesus Knows What is in Man
When Jesus was at the passover feast many people believed in him for they say what he did, but he didn't entrust himself to them because he knew what was in man.
I just said I liked that things were clearly spelled out and then the very next thing is confusing. I have no idea what this was getting at. Oh well, win some lose some.
