Cana

Additional Links

Cana of Galilee. A town where Jesus performed His first miracle, turning the water into wine, and a second one, healing the nobleman's or courtier's son at Capernaum, by a word spoken at a distance (John 2; John 4:46; John 4:54). Nathanael belonged to Cana (John 21:2); it was more elevated than Capernaum, as Jesus "went down" from it there (John 2:12). The traditional site is Kefr Kenna, 5 miles N.E. of Nazareth. Another site has been proposed by Dr. Robinson, namely, Khirbet Kana or Kana el Jelil, but the balance of evidence supports the traditional spot. (See WINE.)
