The Zeal for His House
In the episode of the turning of water into wine at the
wedding in Cana in Galilee (2:1-11), Jesus performs his first
miracle, through which John states that Jesus reveals his glory.
Give an example of a time in your life when, through a miracle
or otherwise, the glory of Jesus/God was revealed
either to you or to those around you.
In vs 14 it is recorded that the merchants were using the outer
court of the temple to sell the animals required for sacrificing.
What was the significance of Jesus actions in vs. 15-16?
See Rev. 11:1-2 for some possible help.
Earlier on we discussed the Gnostics who claimed that all matter
was evil and all spiritual things good, and based on this, deny
the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. What is the
great significance of Johns words in vs 19-21?
In vs 22, it appears that John predicts that the disciples
will/did forget Christs words. What is the significance of
the ministry of the Holy Spirit in helping the believer remember
(and carry out) Gods word and will (see e.g. John 14:26)?
What possible Scripture (i.e. Old Testament writing)
were the disciples reminded of? (BIG Hint: Read
Psalm 16. Which versus are being brought to recollection here
and how do we know?)
Explain in your own words what vs 24-25 mean.
