Bible Cities : Cana


Ancient Cana - Kids Bible maps This map shows the city of Cana where Jesus performed his first miracle: turning water into wine.

Jesus, his mother Mary, and the disciples were all invited to a wedding in the town of Cana. Cana is a few miles north of the town of Nazareth in the region of Galilee. While celebrating, the hosting family ran out of wine so Jesus told their servants to fill six very large stone pots all the way up with water. Then Jesus told them to take some of it out to the host of the party; when they did the man drank the water, but it wasn`t water anymore it was turned into wine!

Isn`t it great that the very first miracle of Jesus recorded in the Bible was for a celebration of marriage? Marriage is beautiful and worthy of celebrating! Now you know where the town of Cana is, where Jesus turned water into wine.
