INTRODUCTION. After Jesus attended the marriage celebration in Cana of Galilee and turned the water into wine, He went to Capernaum for a short time and then to Jerusalem for the Passover Feast (John 2:12-25). When He traveled back to Galilee, He passed through Samaria where He encountered the woman at the well (John 4:1-42). He then continued on his journey and arrived again at Cana where a nobleman came to him asking that He heal his son. The man was called a nobleman which means "royal, belonging to a king" or "little king." He may have been a relative of Herod Antipas, who ruled Galilee at that time, or an officer in the court–what his position was is unknown, but he had come from Capernaum, a day's journey, in order to seek Jesus' aid.
