My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

John 2

Water into wine

Summary:
Jesus' mother told him to sort out the lack of wine at a party, so Jesus turned some water into wine. This was kinda before his ministry but everyone was amazed.

Jesus went to the temple in Jerusalem and went nuts at all the traders. He said he would tear down and rebuild the temple in three days but he was really talking about his own body.

Key verse:
25. He did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.

My thoughts:
John's gospel is full of massive statements like this. Jesus is quite the all-knowing super person in John's gospel. Notice how Mary knows of Jesus' powers and tells him to use them.

Also notice that Jesus clearing the temple happens early in his ministry before he spends his final week in Jerusalem. This emphasises to me that some details of Jesus life are a little confused in the Bible, but the points are not.
