Bible: Jn 4:46-54

Healing the Royal Official’s Son

4:46 Now he came again to Cana 1  in Galilee where he had made the water wine. 2  In 3  Capernaum 4  there was a certain royal official 5  whose son was sick. 4:47 When he heard that Jesus had come back from Judea to Galilee, he went to him and begged him 6  to come down and heal his son, who was about to die. 4:48 So Jesus said to him, “Unless you people 7  see signs and wonders you will never believe! 8  4:49 Sir,” the official said to him, “come down before my child dies.” 4:50 Jesus told him, “Go home; 9  your son will live.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and set off for home. 10 

4:51 While he was on his way down, 11  his slaves 12  met him and told him that his son was going to live. 4:52 So he asked them the time 13  when his condition began to improve, 14  and 15  they told him, “Yesterday at one o’clock in the afternoon 16  the fever left him.” 4:53 Then the father realized that it was the very time 17  Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live,” and he himself believed along with his entire household. 4:54 Jesus did this as his second miraculous sign 18  when he returned from Judea to Galilee.
