约翰福音 2

变水为酒

1第三天,在加利利的迦拿有人举办婚宴,耶稣的母亲在那里。 耶稣和门徒也被邀请去赴宴。 酒喝完了,耶稣的母亲就对祂说:“他们没有酒了。” 耶稣说:“妇人,这跟你我有什么相干[a]?我的时候还没有到。” 祂母亲对仆人说:“祂叫你们做什么,你们就做什么。” 那里有六口犹太人用来行洁净礼仪的石缸,每口可以盛约一百升水。

耶稣对仆人说:“把缸倒满水!”他们就往缸里倒水,一直满到缸口。 耶稣又说:“现在可以舀些出来,送给宴席总管。”他们就送了去。 那些仆人知道这酒是怎样来的,宴席总管却不知道。他尝过那水变的酒后,便把新郎叫来, 10 对他说:“人们都是先拿好酒款待客人,等客人喝够了,才把次等的拿出来,你却把好酒留到现在!” 11 这是耶稣第一次行神迹,是在加利利的迦拿行的,彰显了祂的荣耀,门徒都信了祂。

12 这事以后,耶稣和祂的母亲、弟弟并门徒一起去迦百农住了几天。

洁净圣殿

13 犹太人的逾越节快到了,耶稣便上耶路撒冷去。 14 祂看见圣殿区有人在卖牛羊和鸽子,还有人在兑换银币, 15 就用绳索做成鞭子把牛羊赶出去,倒掉钱商的银币,推翻他们的桌子, 16 又对卖鸽子的说:“把这些东西拿出去!不要把我父的殿当作市场。” 17 祂的门徒想起圣经上说:“我对你的殿充满炙热的爱。”

18 当时,犹太人质问祂:“你给我们显什么神迹来证明你有权这样做?”

19 耶稣回答说:“你们拆毁这座殿,我三天之内会把它重建起来。”

20 他们说:“这座殿用了四十六年才建成,你三天之内就要把它重建起来吗?” 21 其实耶稣说的殿是指自己的身体, 22 所以等到祂从死里复活以后,祂的门徒想起这句话,就相信了圣经和耶稣所传的道。

23 耶稣在耶路撒冷过逾越节期间,许多人看见祂行的神迹,就信了祂。 24 耶稣却不信任他们,因为祂洞悉万人。 25 不用别人告诉祂,祂也深知人的内心。

  1. 2:4 这跟你我有什么相干”或译“我与你有什么相干”。

The Wedding at Cana

1The next day[a] there was a wedding celebration in the village of Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. The wine supply ran out during the festivities, so Jesus’ mother told him, “They have no more wine.”

“Dear woman, that’s not our problem,” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.”

But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

Standing nearby were six stone water jars, used for Jewish ceremonial washing. Each could hold twenty to thirty gallons.[b] Jesus told the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” When the jars had been filled, he said, “Now dip some out, and take it to the master of ceremonies.” So the servants followed his instructions.

When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bridegroom over. 10 “A host always serves the best wine first,” he said. “Then, when everyone has had a lot to drink, he brings out the less expensive wine. But you have kept the best until now!”

11 This miraculous sign at Cana in Galilee was the first time Jesus revealed his glory. And his disciples believed in him.

12 After the wedding he went to Capernaum for a few days with his mother, his brothers, and his disciples.

Jesus Clears the Temple

13 It was nearly time for the Jewish Passover celebration, so Jesus went to Jerusalem. 14 In the Temple area he saw merchants selling cattle, sheep, and doves for sacrifices; he also saw dealers at tables exchanging foreign money. 15 Jesus made a whip from some ropes and chased them all out of the Temple. He drove out the sheep and cattle, scattered the money changers’ coins over the floor, and turned over their tables. 16 Then, going over to the people who sold doves, he told them, “Get these things out of here. Stop turning my Father’s house into a marketplace!”

17 Then his disciples remembered this prophecy from the Scriptures: “Passion for God’s house will consume me.”[c]

18 But the Jewish leaders demanded, “What are you doing? If God gave you authority to do this, show us a miraculous sign to prove it.”

19 “All right,” Jesus replied. “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

20 “What!” they exclaimed. “It has taken forty-six years to build this Temple, and you can rebuild it in three days?” 21 But when Jesus said “this temple,” he meant his own body. 22 After he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered he had said this, and they believed both the Scriptures and what Jesus had said.

Jesus and Nicodemus

23 Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many began to trust in him. 24 But Jesus didn’t trust them, because he knew all about people. 25 No one needed to tell him about human nature, for he knew what was in each person’s heart.
