Khirbet Cana is one of the most likely
candidates for the site of Jesus's first miracle, turning water
to wine. Although the traditional place is in the modern village
of Kefar Kenna, closer (6KM, 3.7 miles) to Nazareth, there are other
scholars that favour this featured site.
The photo is from Khirbet Cana, with a view
towards the east. The fields of the valley of Netufa is seen in
the near background, and Nazareth is located on the far right
hills. On the hillside above the valley are ruins of the
Byzantine period houses, while the Hellenistic and Roman period
ruins, from the times of Jesus, are on the top of the hill -
where the photo was taken.

John 2: 1-11: "And the third day there
was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was
there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the
marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith
unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what
have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother
saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And
there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of
the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they
filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now,
and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. 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, 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. This beginning of miracles did Jesus
in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his
disciples believed on him.".
