(Jn 1:51-2:9 NA28-Mounce)
51 καὶ λέγει αὐτῷ · ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ὄψεσθε τὸν οὐρανὸν ἀνεῳγότα καὶ τοὺς ἀγγέλους τοῦ θεοῦ ἀναβαίνοντας καὶ καταβαίνοντας ἐπὶ τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου. 1 Καὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ γάμος ἐγένετο ἐν Κανὰ τῆς Γαλιλαίας, καὶ ἦν ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ ἐκεῖ · 2 ἐκλήθη δὲ καὶ ὁ Ἰησοῦς καὶ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν γάμον. 3 καὶ ὑστερήσαντος οἴνου λέγει ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ πρὸς αὐτόν · οἶνον οὐκ ἔχουσιν. 4 [καὶ] λέγει αὐτῇ ὁ Ἰησοῦς · τί ἐμοὶ καὶ σοί, γύναι ; οὔπω ἥκει ἡ ὥρα μου. 5 λέγει ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ τοῖς διακόνοις · ὅ τι ἂν λέγῃ ὑμῖν ποιήσατε. 6 ἦσαν δὲ ἐκεῖ λίθιναι ὑδρίαι ἓξ κατὰ τὸν καθαρισμὸν τῶν Ἰουδαίων κείμεναι, χωροῦσαι ἀνὰ μετρητὰς δύο ἢ τρεῖς. 7 λέγει αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς · γεμίσατε τὰς ὑδρίας ὕδατος. καὶ ἐγέμισαν αὐτὰς ἕως ἄνω. 8 καὶ λέγει αὐτοῖς · ἀντλήσατε νῦν καὶ φέρετε τῷ ἀρχιτρικλίνῳ · οἱ δὲ ἤνεγκαν. 9 ὡς δὲ ἐγεύσατο ὁ ἀρχιτρίκλινος τὸ ὕδωρ οἶνον γεγενημένον καὶ οὐκ ᾔδει πόθεν ἐστίν, οἱ δὲ διάκονοι ᾔδεισαν οἱ ἠντληκότες τὸ ὕδωρ, φωνεῖ τὸν νυμφίον ὁ ἀρχιτρίκλινος

  1. Dear Tony:

    Enjoyed the post once again. It is interesting how we can sometimes gain insight when the chapter divisions are not present in the text. John 1:51 takes the reader back to Jacob of old, the protypical patriarch of Old Israel. Jesus is beginning his public ministry and is illustrating how Old Israel and the Old Covenant (acted out in his miracle by the appearance of the water pots) will give way to a New Covenant and He being the Mediator thereof (pictured by the “New Wine” miracle). Anyhow just some thoughts. Thanks for mentioning my blogsite. I wrote a post pointing people to yours and hope it encourages you: Blessings! Soli deo gloria!

  2. Thanks Mahlon, for the write up on my blog. It was very encouraging and I do appreciate it. I also take your point about chapter divisions and how they are artificial and can break up the flow of the author. Interesting note about the ushering in of the New Covenant/New Wine with the first sign being changing water into wine.
