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. xiv. 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
(ver. 1-11), and his
appearing at Capernaum, ver.
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 (ver. 13-17); and the sign he gave to those
who quarrelled with him for it (ver. 18-22), with an account of some
almost believers, that followed him, thereupon, for some time
(ver. 23-25), but he
knew them too well to put any confidence in them.
