Cana

Additional Links

City of Galilee, Palestine, near Nazareth, the scene of Our Lord's first miracle (John 2) and His cure of the ruler's son (John 4) and the birthplace of Nathaniel or Saint Bartholomew (John 21). The miracle of the marriage feast of Cana which has made the city forever famous, when Christ turned water into wine, was performed before His public life had fully begun, and is one of the best-authenticated of Our Lord's miracles. His attendance at the marriage feast has always been taken as setting His seal on the sanctity of marriage.
