Jesus’ First Public Miracle:
In the church in Cana that commemorates Jesus’ first miracle we will hold a short service. Since Jesus’ performed this miracle at a wedding some like to gather in the church to conduct a marriage renewal ceremony.
First miracle Jesus performed in His public ministry was at Cana.
John 2:1–10—1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. 5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. 6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. 7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. 9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
John 2:11—11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
Cana is mentioned again when Jesus heals the nobleman’s son in Capernaum
John 4:46—46 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
Jesus came into Cana first after leaving Samaria.
John 21:2—There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee,
