Chapter 2

In the close of the foregoing chapter we had an account of the first disciples whom Jesus called, Andrew and Peter, Philip and Nathanael. These were the first-fruits to God and to the Lamb, Rev. 14:4. Now, in this chapter, we have, I. The account of the first miracle which Jesus wrought-turning water into wine, at Cana of Galilee (John 2:1-11), and his appearing at Capernaum, John 2:12. II. The account of the first passover he kept at Jerusalem after he began his public ministry; his driving the buyers and sellers out of the temple (John 2:13-17); and the sign he gave to those who quarrelled with him for it (John 2:18-22), with an account of some almost believers, that followed him, thereupon, for some time (John 2:23-25), but he knew them too well to put any confidence in them.
