Official's son at Capernaum
An Official seeks out Jesus to heal his son. Through an act of faith Jesus tells the official his son lives and he does.
4:46 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.
4:47 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
4:48 Then said Jesus unto him,
Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
4:49 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
4:50 Jesus saith unto him,
Go thy way: thy son liveth.
And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
4:51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told
, saying, Thy son liveth.
4:52 Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
4:53 So the father knew that
at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him,
Thy son liveth:
and himself believed, and his whole house.
4:54 This is again the second miracle
Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
