Cana was a town in the highlands of Galilee, a few miles/kilometers north of Nazareth. Although no longer in existence (the precise location of Cana is today not known with certainty) and mentioned only four times in The Bible, all in the book of John, it will be forever famous as the place where the first public miracle of Jesus Christ occurred. The healing of the nobleman's dying son was also done from Cana. See also Miracles Of Jesus Christ.


Water Into Wine

"On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there [see Mary]; Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with His disciples. When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine."

"And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with Me? My hour has not yet come."

"His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever He tells you."

"Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons."

"Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled them up to the brim."

"He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast." So they took it."

"When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew, the steward of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him, "Every man serves the good wine first; and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine; but you have kept the good wine until now."

"This, the first of His signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him." (John 2:1-11 RSV)

Healing Of A Dying Child

"After the two days He departed to Galilee. For Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country. So when He came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed Him, having seen all that He had done in Jerusalem at the feast, for they too had gone to the feast."

"So He came again to Cana in Galilee, where He had made the water wine. And at Capernaum there was an official whose son was ill. When he heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went and begged Him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death."

"Jesus therefore said to him, "Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe."

"The official said to Him, "Sir, come down before my child dies."

"Jesus said to him, "Go; your son will live."

"The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and went his way. As he was going down, his servants met him and told him that his son was living. So he asked them the hour when he began to mend, and they said to him, "Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him."

"The father knew that was the hour when Jesus had said to him, "Your son will live"; and he himself believed, and all his household."

"This was now the second sign that Jesus did when He had come from Judea to Galilee." (John 4:44-54 RSV)
