Again the next day after John stood, and 35 two of his disciples; and looking upon Jesus as 36 he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and 37 they followed Jesus. Then Jesus turned, and 38 saw them following, and saith unto them, "What "seek ye?" They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou? He saith unto them, "Come and 39 see." They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour. One of the two which heard John 40 speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first findeth his own bro- 41 ther Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus. And 42

The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, 44" Follow me." Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the 45 city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom m Moses in the law, and the m Gen. 3. prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son 10. Deut. 46 of Joseph. And Nathanael said unto him, Can 18.18. there any good thing come out of Nazareth? & 7.14. 47 Philip saith unto him, Come and see.

Jesus answered and said unto him, "Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under "the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see 51" greater things than these." And he saith unto him, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, 'Hereafter ? Gen. 28. "ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of "God ascending and descending upon the Son "of man."

19. The marriage-feast at Cana in Galilee.
J. 2. 1
AND the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there and both Jesus was called, and his dis- 2 ciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted 3 wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, "Woman, 4 b So 2 Sa. b 2 what have I to do with thee? mine hour is "not yet come." His mother saith unto the 5 servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, 6 after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus 7 saith unto them, "Fill the waterpots with water." And they filled them up to the brim. And he 8 saith unto them, "Draw out now, and bear unto "the governor of the feast." And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the 9 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, and saith unto him, Every man at 10 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. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in 11 Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
After this he went down to Capernaum, he, 12 and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples and they continued there not many days.

AND the Jews' passover was at hand, and A.D. 30. Jesus went up to Jerusalem, and found in the aEx.12.14. temple those that sold oxen and sheep and 15 doves, and the changers of money sitting: and when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' 16 money, and overthrew the tables; and said unto them that sold doves, "Take these things hence; "make not my Father's house an house of merM". 21. "chandise. It is written, My house shall be 13" called the house of prayer; c but have made Jer. 7.11. ye J. 2." it a den of thieves." And his disciples remem17 bered that it was written, The zeal of thine & Ps. 69.9. house hath eaten me up.
