The Holy Gospel According to John    4: 43-54

4:43 Then, after two days, he departed from there, and he traveled into Galilee.
4:44 For Jesus himself offered testimony that a Prophet has no honor in his own country.
4:45 And so, when he had arrived in Galilee, the Galileans received him, because they had seen all that he had done at Jerusalem, in the day of the feast. For they also went to the feast day.
4:46 Then he went again into Cana of Galilee, where he made water into wine. And there was a certain ruler, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
4:47 Since he had heard that Jesus came to Galilee from Judea, he sent to him and begged him to come down and heal his son. For he was beginning to die.
4:48 Therefore, Jesus said to him, “Unless you have seen signs and wonders, you do not believe.”
4:49 The ruler said to him, “Lord, come down before my son dies.”
4:50 Jesus said to him, “Go, your son lives.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and so he went away.
4:51 Then, as he was going down, his servants met him. And they reported to him, saying that his son was alive.
4:52 Therefore, he asked them at which hour he had become better. And they said to him, “Yesterday, at the seventh hour, the fever left him.”
4:53 Then the father realized that it was at the same hour that Jesus said to him, “Your son lives.” And both he and his entire household believed.
4:54 This next sign was the second that Jesus accomplished, after he had arrived in Galilee from Judea.
