Official’s Son healed
Jesus Heals an Official’s Son
43 After spending two days there, Jesus left and went to Galilee. 44 For he himself had said, “A prophet is not respected in his own country.” 45 When he arrived in Galilee, the people there welcomed him, because they had gone to the Passover Festival in Jerusalem and had seen everything that he had done during the festival.
46 Then Jesus went back to Cana in Galilee, where he had turned the water into wine. A government official was there whose son was ill in Capernaum. 47 When he heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went to him and asked him to go to Capernaum and heal his son, who was about to die. 48 Jesus said to him, “None of you will ever believe unless you see miracles and wonders.” 49 “Sir,” replied the official, “come with me before my child dies.” 50 Jesus said to him, “Go, your son will live!” The man believed Jesus’ words and went.
51 On his way home his servants met him with the news, “Your boy is going to live!”
52 He asked them what time it was when his son got better, and they answered, “It was one o’clock yesterday afternoon when the fever left him.” 53 Then the father remembered it was at that very hour that Jesus had told him, “Your son will live.” So he and all his family believed.
54 This was the second miracle that Jesus performed after coming from Judea to Galilee.
