John 1:35-2:12

On the next day again John was standing
with two of his disciples, and seeing Jesus walking,
says, "Look, the lamb of God."
And the two disciples heard him speaking and followed Jesus.

And Jesus turning and seeing him following
says to them, "What are you looking for?"

And they said to him, "Rabbi
(which translated means "Teacher"),
where are you staying?"

He says to them, "Come and you will see."
So they went and saw where he was staying,
and they stayed with him that day;
it was about the tenth hour.

Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter,
was one of the two who had heard John and followed him;
first he finds his own brother Simon and tells him,
"We have found the Messiah" (which is translated "Christ").

He led him to Jesus.
Looking at him Jesus said, "You are Simon, the son of John;
you shall be called Cephas" (which is translated "Peter").

The next day he wished to go out to Galilee,
and he finds Philip.
And Jesus tells him, "Follow me."
And Philip was from Bethsaida, from the town of Andrew and Peter.

Philip finds Nathanael and tells him,
"We have found him about whom
Moses in the law and the prophets wrote,
Jesus, son of Joseph, from Nazareth."

And Nathanael said to him,
"Can anything good be from Nazareth?"

Philip says to him, "Come and see."

Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and says about him,
"Look, a true Israelite, in whom there is no deceit."

Nathanael says to him, "From where do you know me?"

Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you,
while you were under the fig tree I saw you."

Nathanael answered him, "Rabbi, you are the son of God;
you are king of Israel."

Jesus answered and said to him, "Because I told you
that I saw you underneath the fig tree, do you believe?
You shall see greater things than these."
And he says to him, "Amen, amen, I tell you,
you shall see heaven opened and the angels of God
going up and coming down upon the human son."

And on the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee,
and the mother of Jesus was there;
and both Jesus and his disciples were invited to the wedding.
And running out of wine,
the mother of Jesus says to him, "They have no wine."

And Jesus says to her, "What is that to me and you, woman?
My hour has not yet come."

His mother says to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
And lying there were six stone water jars
according to the purifications of the Jews,
each holding twenty or thirty gallons.

Jesus tells them, "Draw now and carry to the headwaiter."
And they carried it.

And when the headwaiter tasted it, the water had become wine,
and he did not know where it was from,
but the servants who drew the water knew;
the headwaiter calls the bridegroom and says to him,
"Everyone first puts out the fine wine,
and when they are drunk the lesser;
you have kept the fine wine until now."

This beginning of the miracles Jesus did in Cana of Galilee,
and he manifested his glory,
and his disciples believed in him.

After this he went down to Capernaum,
he and his mother and brothers and his disciples,
and there they stayed not many days.
