John 2: 1-25 – Synthesis of the Ministry of Jesus

The second chapter of the Gospel of John according to the evangelist is usually considered the beginning of the ministry of Jesus. There are two events narrated here. They are:

        i.            The changing of water into wine, and

      ii.            Declaration of the impurity of the temple together with the prediction of the new temple.

John 2 has an introductory function, when interpreted comprehensively in terms of presenting a synthesis of the ministry of Jesus. The actual beginning of the ministry of Jesus is in John 3: 1ff.
