Jesus returned to Cana of Galilee, where he had performed the miracle of turning water into wine at the wedding. There was a royal official in Capernaum whose son was very sick. When he learned that Jesus was not far away, he traveled to plead with him to come to Capernaum and heal his dying son.
Jesus said “You people will not believe unless you see signs and wonders.”
The official begged, saying “Sir, please come with me before my son dies!”
Jesus said “Go. Your son will live.” The man believed the message that Jesus had given him and left.
On his way home the official’s servants met him and told him that his son was alive. He asked them when his son had recovered and they told him “The fever left him at seven in the morning yesterday.” The boy’s father realized that this was the very time that Jesus had said “Your son will live.” Then he and his whole household believed.
This was the second sign that Jesus performed after he returned from Judea to Galilee (according to John).
