John Chapter 2: Outline and Footnotes

Joh 2:1 On the third day there was a wedding at Cana
in Galilee[C1] , and the mother of Jesus was there.
                2 Jesus also was invited to the wedding 
                 with his disciples.
                3 When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus 
                 said to him, "They have no wine."
                           4 And Jesus said to her, "Woman[C2]
                           what does this have to do with me[C3]?
                           My hour has not yet come."
                           5 His mother said to the servants, 
                           "Do whatever he tells you[C4] ."
                6 Now there were six stone water jars there 
                for the Jewish rites of purification[C5] , each 
                holding 20 or 30 gallons.
                           7 Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the 
                            jars with water." And they filled them 
                            "Now draw some out & take it 
                            to the feast-master." So they took it.
                9 When the master of the feast tasted the 
                                 and didn't know whence it came
                                   (though the servants who had 
                                 the master of the feast called the 
                                 bridegroom 10 and said… 
                                 "Everyone serves good wine first 
                                 and when people have drunk 
                                 you have kept the good wine
                                            [C10] until now."
11 This, the first of his signs[C11] , Jesus did at Cana in Galilee,
                and manifested his glory[C12] .
                And his disciples believed [C13] in him.

12 After this he went down to Capernaum[C14] , with 
his mother, brothers and disciples, and stayed there 
a few days.13 The Passover of the Jews was at hand, 
                14 In the temple he found those who were 
                and the money-changers sitting there.
                                15 And making a whip[C18]  of cords 
                                he drove them all out of the temple 
                                w/ the sheep & oxen.
                                And he poured out the coins [C19] 
                                of the money-changers and over-
                                turned their tables. 16 And he told 
                                those who sold pigeons, "Take 
                                17 His disciples remembered it was 
                                written, "Zeal for your house will consume me."
                18 So the Jews said to him, "What sign do you 
                 show us for doing these things?"
                                19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy 
                20 The Jews then, "It's taken 46 years to
                build the temple, will you raise it in 3 days?"
                                21 But he was speaking about the 
                                temple of his body.
                                22 When therefore he was raised 
                                from the dead,
                                                his disciples remembered 
                                                he said this, and they
                                                and the word Jesus had 
                23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the 
                Passover Feast, many believed in his name 
                24 But Jesus on his part did not entrust 
                himself to them,
                           because he knew all people[C26] 
                           25 and needed no one to bear witness 
                           about man, for he himself knew what 
                           was in man.

 [C1]In Jn 1 Jesus is in Judea then suddenly appears in Galilee.  But, 1 ends with story of Nathanael and acc to Jn 21.2 he is from Cana!
 [C2]Woman, like Ma’am, not in a motherly way but respectfully
 [C3]OR: Jesus said to her, `What--to me and to thee, woman? ‘
 [C4]Obedience is vital
 [C5]Jesus redeems the OT
 [C6]Not ½ or ¾ - fully obedient
 [C7]The miracle changed the substance of water, transubstantiation doesn’t!
 [C8]And so word got out
 [C9]Ref to inebriation
 [C10]Jesus didn’t make bad wine
 [C11]Called signs not miracles because signs point to something
 [C12]Joh_12:32  if I be lifted up
 [C13]The purpose of “Signs”
 [C14]From Cana – up in the hills, to Capernaum on the coast of Galilee
 [C15]South in Judea but “up”
 [C16]Some say this is cleansing just b4 crucifixion, but details are different!
 [C17]Not in Synoptics (oxen, sheep)
 [C18]Not in synoptics
 [C19]Not in synoptics
 [C20]Not in synoptics
 [C21]Not in synoptics –  doesn’t quote scripture but claims His Father’s house
 [C22]Not suggesting thievery just a wrong use of God’s house and impeding to true worship.  Zec 14:21 every pot in Jeru-salem… shall be holy to the LORD… so all who sacrifice may come…boil the meat of sacrifice… And there shall no longer be a merchant in the house of the LORD… on that day. Mal 3:1
 [C23]Mt 26:61 and said, "This man said, 'I am able to destroy the temple …
 [C24]A purpose of His teachings
 [C25]Purpose of signs

  1. I think Jesus did this miracle for his disciples benefit. They believed in him, maybe the servants, too. He also wanted to make sure the wedding went well. He is a good guy to have at a wedding, funeral, etc.


Feel free to tell me and others what you think. You can use the tools of rhetoric but please, be clean and nice.
