Free Bible Map of Cana

This Galilean town was the scene of Jesus’ first miracle: changing water into wine at a wedding feast (John 2:1, 11). Jesus was again in Cana when he told a nobleman that his son, who was seriously ill at Capernaum, would live (4:46). Cana was also the home of Jesus’ disciple Nathanael (21:2).

During the first Jewish revolt, which resulted in the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70, Cana was made headquarters for defending Galilee against the Romans.

After the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple, the town became the seat of the priestly family of Eliashib. John’s Gospel refers to it as “Cana of Galilee,” evidently to distinguish it from the Kanah located near the Phoenician city of Tyre (Joshua 19:28).

The traditional site of Cana, revered as such since Byzantine and medieval times, is Kefar Kana, about four miles east of Nazareth on the main road from Nazareth to Tiberias.

 

Contemporary scholars, however, have almost unanimously settled on Khirbet Kana as the site of New Testament Cana.

That ruin is about eight miles north of Nazareth on the northern edge of the Battuf Plain. The Arabs of the region call it Cana of Galilee to this day.

Archaeologists exploring at the site have found pottery from the Hebrew monarchy period (around 900-600 BC) as well as from Hellenistic, Roman, Arabic, and Crusader times.

Cana Bible Verses:
John 2:1 "And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:"
2:11 "This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him."
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.
21:2 "There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples."
