Summary: Knowing that God has all power

In our lesson on today we get to see Jesus in action in many different aspects. First we get to see God become flesh, and if we look at John the first chapter it says “1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. ??5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.


John make it clear that Jesus is not just an ordinary man, but instead he is the Son of God, John shows us how he is He is clear that Jesus is more than the messiah, he’s more than the son of man, he’s more than a prophet, he shows that he is the absolute of invincible principle; he shows us that he is the word made flesh.


So He labors in this first chapter of St. John to clearly and divinity articulating the fact that Christ is God, the same God who step out on

nothing and said let there be something and it became what ever he said because he is that kind of God.  

Now in chapter 2 we see Jesus in Cana of Galilee for the first time, and the bible says “And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. 5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. 6 And there were set there six water pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. 7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the water pots with water.


And they filled them up to the brim. The six waterpots were used both for drinking water and for the purifying and cleansing of the Jews, that is, the ceremonial and religious cleansing of the hands and utensils. When a Jew saw the water pots, he knew they were there both for satisfying his thirst and for his religious cleansing. Jesus used the water pots to show that He had the power.

To purify, cleanse, and satisfy men.

To create and produce whatever was necessary to cleanse and satisfy men.


8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. 9  When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. 11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him. Now this last verse is very important for you to remember because I’m coming back to it in a couple seconds.


This second chapter shows us that Jesus is meeting with individuals, he preaching to crowds, training his disciple’s and debating with the religious leaders. Because the message that he gave them, that he is, the Son of God receives some mix reaction. Some worship him, some were puzzled, some laugh at him, and there were some that shunned him, and what’s so funny is that there are some of those same reaction being displayed today. People don’t treat Jesus like who he says that he is.
