Isimangaliso sokuqala sikaJesu
1Kwathi ngosuku lwesithathu kwakukhona umshado eKhana laseGalile; wayekhona lapho unina kaJesu. 2NoJesu nabafundi bakhe babemenyiwe emshadweni. 3Kwathi ukuba lisweleke iwayini, unina kaJesu wathi kuye: “Kabanalo iwayini.”
4UJesu wathi kuye: “Mame, ungene ngani kokwami na? Isikhathi sami asikafiki.”
5Wathi unina ezincekwini: “Nayikuphi akusho kini anokwenza.”
6Kwakukhona lapho izimbiza zamatshe eziyisithupha zibekwe ngesiko lokuhlamba labaJuda, ziphethe yileso naleso izilinganiso ezimbili noma ezintathu.
7UJesu wathi ezincekwini: “Gcwalisani izimbiza ngamanzi;” zazigcwalisa-ke.
8Wayesethi kuzo: “Yikhani manje, niyise kumphathi wokudla;” zayisa-ke. 9Umphathi wokudla ezwa amanzi aphenduke iwayini, engazi ukuthi livelaphi, kepha izinceku ezaziwakhile amanzi bezazi, umphathi wokudla wabiza umyeni, wathi kuye: 10“Wonke umuntu ubeka iwayini elimnandi kuqala, kuthi lapha sebephuze kakhulu, akhiphe elibi kunalo; wena ugcinile elimnandi kuze kube manje.”
11 # Joh. 1:14 Lokho ukuqala kwezibonakaliso wakwenza uJesu eKhana laseGalile ebonakalisa inkazimulo yakhe; abafundi bakhe bakholwa nguye.
Abathengisi ethempelini
12Ngasemva kwalokho wehlela eKapernawume, yena, nonina, nabafowabo, nabafundi bakhe, bahlala khona izinsuku ezingeziningi.
13Lalisondele iPhasika labaJuda; uJesu wakhuphukela eJerusalema. 14Wafumana ethempelini abathengisa ngezinkomo nangezimvu nangamajuba, nabahlezi beshintsha imali. 15Wayesenza inkalivasi* ngezintambo, waxosha bonke ethempelini, nezimvu nezinkomo, wachitha imali yabashintshayo, wagumbuqela amatafula, 16wathi kwabathengisa ngamajuba: “Susani lokhu lapha, ningayenzi indlu kaBaba indlu yokuthengelana.”
17 # AmaH. 69:9 Abafundi bakhe bakhumbula ukuba kulotshwe ukuthi: “Ukushisekela indlu yakho kuyangidla.”
18 # Joh. 6:30 Ngakho-ke abaJuda baphendula, bathi kuye: “Usitshengisa isibonakaliso sini ukuba wenze lokhu na?”
19UJesu waphendula, wathi kubo: “Bhidlizani leli thempeli, ngizakulivusa ngezinsuku ezintathu.”
20Ngakho bathi abaJuda: “Leli thempeli kwaba yiminyaka engamashumi amane nesithupha lakhiwa, wena-ke uzakulivusa ngezinsuku ezintathu na?” 21Kepha wayekhuluma ngethempeli lomzimba wakhe. 22#AmaH. 16:10Kuthe esevukile kwabafileyo, abafundi bakhe bakhumbula ukuthi washo njalo kubo; bakholwa ngumbhalo nezwi abelishilo uJesu.
23Kwathi eseJerusalema ngePhasika emkhosini, abaningi bakholwa egameni lakhe bebona izibonakaliso zakhe azenzayo; 24kepha uJesu yena kabethembanga ukuba abhobokelane nabo, ngokuba wayebazi bonke, 25#Joh. 6:64; IsAmb. 2:23nangokuba engaswele nobani amfakazele ngomuntu; wayekwazi yena okuphakathi komuntu.
