Seeking Truth Bible Study: Gospel of John (Chapter 2 Part 2)
Chapter 2 Part 2: Chapter 2 continues with the wedding feast of Cana, which occurs on the seventh day,
the third day after the fourth day. The wedding feast at Cana is a symbol of a new creation, a new
covenant and serves as the backdrop of the mystical marriage: Jesus, the new Adam, enters into a
spiritual marriage with Mary, the new Eve, and the fruit of this marriage is the Church. The marriage is
consummated at the cross and the church is birthed at Pentecost. Another theme that runs through
John’s Gospel are the Jewish feast days. In this the first of three Passovers found in John’s Gospel, Jesus
clears the Temple of merchants and money changers.
