The scene of the Lord's first miracle and of His second in Galilee: the native place of Nathanael. John 2:1,11; John 4:46; John 21:2 . There is nothing in these passages to tell where Cana was situated except that it was in the neighbourhood of Capernaum and on higher ground. It is identified by most with Kefr Kenna, 32 45' N, 35 20' E , but others prefer Kana el Jelil, about 8 miles north of Nazareth, the name of which more resembles Cana.
