1 Yahusha was marrying Miriam/Mary of Bethany in Cana of Galilee on the Third Day of the week (Physical to Spiritual Parallel of when the Bearer of Living Water and Manna Mikveh’s the Earth; on the Third Day/Kingdom Reign, the Age of AQUARIUS, after the Age of PISCES/2 Prophetic Days when he paid the dowry for his Bride). Miriam, the mother of Yahusha, was there in charge of the wedding activities;

1 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there,

2 with Yahusha and the Disciples he invited to the wedding.

and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.

3 Miriam, the mother of the Groom (Yahusha), noticed they were deficient of wine and went to the Groom and informed him so he could bring out more wine (In Hebrew weddings, it is the responsibility of the Groom to provide the wine; and it is the responsibility of the Mother of the Groom to watch over the wine supply because the Groom was busy with the wedding activities).

When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

4 Yahusha said: what can I do (g1473 – ‘what have I to do’) for you (g4771to you’)? Mother (g3384), show to me (g1473‘to me’) which (g5101what, which’) wine skins; and also (g2532‘also’) how many so I can refill them? I have limited time (g5610 – ‘limited time’), I (g1473 – ‘I’) do not have to be present (g2240‘be present’) in the wedding activities just yet.

“Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”

5 His mother said to the servants of the wedding; do whatever my son, the Groom, says to do.

His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

6 Yahusha noticed there were six water pots of stone standing there used for ceremonial purification of the Yahudaim, each holding twenty to thirty gallons.

Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

7 Yahusha said to them: Fill the water pots with Living (clean) Water. So, they filled them up to the brim.

Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water; so they filled them to the brim.

8 Then he said to them: Now draw some out and take it to my mother who is in charge of the wedding feast; so they did as he asked.

Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so,

9 When the one in charge of the wedding feast (Miriam the mother of the Groom) had tasted the water that was made wine (only the servants knew what Yahusha had done, Miriam did not know where it came from this was Yahusha’s First miracle), the one in charge of the wedding feast (Miriam) called the Yahusha the Bridegroom.

and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside

10 And said to him; Every man sets out the choicest wine at the beginning; then, when the guests have had plenty to drink, they set out the lesser quality wine. But you have reserved the choicest wine until now.

10 and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”

11 This act at Cana of Galilee was only the beginning of his Acts of Power, and word spread and Yahusha became well known; this strengthened his Disciple’s belief in Yahusha; convincing them to proclaim Yahusha was The Messiah (One foretold in The Heavenly Scroll).

11 What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

12 Yahusha went down to Capernaum along with his mother (Miriam), his brothers, and his Disciples; but they did not remain and stayed only a couple of days.

12 After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples. There they stayed for a few days.

13 Now Yahusha went up to Yerushalayim/Jerusalem for Passover,

13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

14 And found those who were selling the sacrificial animals (oxen, sheep, and turtledoves) for a profit, along with others sitting and changing money for the offerings at a profit in the sacred precincts of The Temple.

14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.

15 Yahusha made had made a whip of small cords, then drove them all out of The Temple Outer Courts along with the sheep and oxen and overturned the tables where the money was being exchanged for profit;

15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.

16 And said to those who sold turtledoves: Take these things away! Do not make my Father's House a house of merchandise!

16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!”

17 Then his Disciples remembered that it was Written: The zeal for Your House has eaten me up (Psalm 69:9).

17 His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”

18 Then the Yahudaim confronted Yahusha, and said to him; What sign can you show us that you have authority to do these things?

18 The Jews then responded to him, “What sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?”

19 Yahusha answered, and said to them: Destroy this Temple, and in three days it will be raised up (The Sign of Yahnah/Jonah Matthew 12:38-45).

19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”

20 The Yahudaim then said; It took forty-six years to build this Temple, and you will raise it up in three days?

20 They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?”

21 But Yahusha was speaking of The Temple of his Body.

21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body.

22 Now when Yahusha was raised from the dead (as the Chief Cornerstone of the Final Kingdom Temple of Yahuah Ephesians 2:20), his Disciples remembered that he had said this to the Yahudaim; and they believed the Scripture (in Psalm 69:9) was a prophecy speaking of Yahusha.

22 After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.

23 When Yahusha was in Yerushalayim/Jerusalem during The Passover Feast of Unleavened Bread many believed and entered into the covenant that bears his Name (The Yahushaic Covenant); trusted him because of his power, when they saw the Acts of Power that he performed.

23 Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Festival, many people saw the signs he was performing and believed in his name.

24 However, Yahusha did not himself trust in Acts of Power because he knew the heart of man (that only a wicked and adulterous generation requires such things as “proof” Matthew 16:4),

24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all people.

25 Yahusha did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in the heart of man (he only needed The Word of Yahuah’s Testimony in The Heavenly Scroll which is greater than man’s testimony on Earth… 1 John  5:9).

25 He did not need any testimony about mankind, for he knew what was in each
