Cana

Cana was a village in Galilee about 12 miles west of the Sea of Galilee. It was here that Jesus performed his first miracle, turning water into wine, while attending a wedding. Later, a royal official came to Cana to ask Jesus to heal his son, who was sick in Capernaum. Jesus healed the man's son.

The apostle Nathanael came from Cana. Today there are 2 churches there commemorating Jesus' first miracle, a Greek Orthodox, and a Franciscan church.

Cana appears in 4 Bible verses: John 2:1, John 2:11, John 4:46 and John 21:2.
