Cana of Galilee (kâ'nah). A town noted as the scene of Christ's first miracle, John 2:1-11, and of another miracle, 4:46-54, and as the home of Nathanael. 21:2. Tradition places it at Kefr-Kenna, about four English miles northeast of Nazareth, and the traveller is now shown an earthen jar, which is claimed to be one of the water-jars used at the wedding. Robinson and others, with fair probability, identify Cana with Kâna-el-Jelîl, about nine miles north of Nazareth. It has a fine situation, and the ruins indicate the existence in former times of a considerable village.
