On day two of BLC’s “With Jesus in the Galilee” we went to the historical site of Cana. Most people think of an Arab village just outside Nazareth, Kfar Cana, as the location of where the miracle took place. However, Kfar Cana was “introduced” in the Byzantine period so as to allow pilgrims walking from Nazareth to the Sea of Galilee to commemorate the event somewhere along the way, rather than having to make a long detour to the historical site. Because of the convenience of modern transportation, we went to the historical site, an archaeological tel(“ruins” in Hebrew) on the top of a hill, overlooking the fields of the Beth Netofa valley. And of course, once on top, we read John 2, in Koine Greek.

The video below has us sitting in the ruins of a large building (we would like it if it turned out to be a synagogue). Enjoy hearing the story in Koine Greek, and then see if you can follow our conversation (also in Koine Greek). The footage is unedited.
