28. The Second Miracle at Cana

He returned to Cana where he had turned the water into wine. There was a nobleman in Capernaum whose son was sick.

When he heard that Jesus was in the area, he found Jesus and begged him to heal his son, who was at the point of death.

Jesus said to him:

Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe.

The nobleman said:

Sir, come down or else my child will die.

Jesus said:

Go your way: your son is alive and well.

The man believed Jesus and went home.

As he was going to see his son, his servants met him with news that his son was fully recovered.

He asked his servants when his son had become well.

They told him that it was yesterday at the seventh hour that fever left him.

The father knew that was at the same hour that Jesus had told him that his son was alive and well.

The nobleman believed in Jesus, as did his entire household.

This was the second sign that Jesus did after he came out of Judea into Galilee.
