John 2:1–25

Christ Changes Water to Wine

2 On the third day there was a awedding in bCana of Galilee, and the cmother of Jesus was there. Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, “They have no wine.”

Jesus said to her, d“Woman, ewhat does your concern have to do with Me? fMy hour has not yet come.”

His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”

Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, gaccording to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it. When the master of the feast had tasted hthe water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom. 10 And he said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!”

The Disciples Believe

11 This ibeginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, jand 1manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.

12 After this He went down to kCapernaum, He, His mother, lHis brothers, and His disciples; and they did not stay there many days.

Christ Cleanses the Temple

13 mNow the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 nAnd He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers 2doing business. 15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. 16 And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make oMy Father’s house a house of merchandise!” 17 Then His disciples remembered that it was written, p“Zeal for Your house 3has eaten Me up.”

18 So the Jews answered and said to Him, q“What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?”

19 Jesus answered and said to them, r“Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

20 Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”

21 But He was speaking sof the temple of His body. 22 Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, tHis disciples remembered that He had said this 4to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.

23 Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in His name when they saw the usigns which He did. 24 But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He vknew all men, 25 and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for wHe knew what was in man.

John 6:1–71

Christ Feeds 5,000

Matt. 14:13–21; Mark 6:31–44; Luke 9:11–17

6 After athese things Jesus went over the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of bTiberias. Then a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His signs which He performed on those who were cdiseased. 1 And Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat with His disciples.

dNow the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was near. eThen Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to fPhilip, “Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?” But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.

Philip answered Him, g“Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little.”

One of His disciples, hAndrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him, “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, ibut what are they among so many?”

10 Then Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them 2to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. 12 So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, “Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.” 13 Therefore they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten. 14 Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, “This is truly jthe Prophet who is to come into the world.”

Christ Walks on the Water

Matt. 14:22–33; Mark 6:45–52

15 Therefore when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him kking, He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone.

16 lNow when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, 17 got into the boat, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them. 18 Then the sea arose because a great wind was blowing. 19 So when they had rowed about 3three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near the boat; and they were mafraid. 20 But He said to them, n“It is I; do not be afraid.” 21 Then they willingly received Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land where they were going.

“I Am the Bread of Life”

22 On the following day, when the people who were standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except 4that one 5which His disciples had entered, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with His disciples, but His disciples had gone away alone—23 however, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks—24 when the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum, oseeking Jesus. 25 And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, “Rabbi, when did You come here?”

26 Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27 pDo not labor for the food which perishes, but qfor the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man …

John 11:1–57

Christ Raises Lazarus

11 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of aMary and her sister Martha. bIt was that Mary who anointed the Lord with fragrant oil and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.”

When Jesus heard that, He said, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”

Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when He heard that he was sick, cHe stayed two more days in the place where He was. Then after this He said to the disciples, “Let us go to Judea again.”

The disciples said to Him, “Rabbi, lately the Jews sought to dstone You, and are You going there again?”

Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? eIf anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the flight of this world. 10 But gif one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.” 11 These things He said, and after that He said to them, “Our friend Lazarus hsleeps, but I go that I may wake him up.”

12 Then His disciples said, “Lord, if he sleeps he will get well.” 13 However, Jesus spoke of his death, but they thought that He was speaking about taking rest in sleep.

14 Then Jesus said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead. 15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, that you may believe. Nevertheless let us go to him.”

16 Then iThomas, who is called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with Him.”

17 So when Jesus came, He found that he had already been in the tomb four days. 18 Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about 1two miles away. 19 And many of the Jews had joined the women around Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

20 Now Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him, but Mary was sitting in the house. 21 Now Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that jwhatever You ask of God, God will give You.”

23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”

24 Martha said to Him, k“I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”

25 Jesus said to her, “I am lthe resurrection and the life. mHe who believes in Me, though he may ndie, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

27 She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, oI believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”

28 And when she had said these things, she went her way and secretly called Mary her sister, saying, “The Teacher has come and is calling for you.” 29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly and came to Him. 30 Now Jesus had not yet come into the town, but 2was in the place where Martha met Him. 31 pThen the Jews who were with her in the house, and comforting her, when they saw that Mary rose up quickly and went out, followed her, 3saying, “She is going to the tomb to weep there.”

32 Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she qfell down at His feet, saying to Him, r“Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.”

33 Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was …
