    What was the result?

    When is His hour? See John 12:23 and 17:1.

  4. What was unusual about the wine Jesus made from water?

    What does verse 11 say are the significances of this sign?

    See Numbers 28:16-25.

  9. What prophecy did this incident bring to the minds of Jesus' disciples?

  10. The Jews wanted Jesus' credentials of authority for doing this. Write Jesus' answer to the Jews.

    Why were the Jews perplexed by this answer?

    His Knowledge (John 2:23-25)

  11. Why did many believe in the name of Jesus?
