the real Cana (October, 2017)

the real Cana, with the wedding at Cana - is near the real Nazareth

the real Nazareth

We get lots of info in the Bible and in Josephus.

Let's start with:

John 2:11-12 (KJV)
This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee,
and manifested forth his glory;
and his disciples believed on him.
After this he went down to Capernaum,
he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples:
and they continued there not many days.

Wow. The same "down to Capernaum" that fits perfectly from the Arbel and Nitai regions. And this time from John, corroborating Luke.


And this from:

William Hepworth Dixon (1812-1879)

"Jesus, coming up from the lake country with his disciples, met his mother at Cana (St. John ii. 2). From Cana He goes "down to Capernaum" (ii. 12). The expressions show that Cana stood on the ledge of the hill country, above the lake, and on the road from Bethsaida and Capernaum to Nazareth."

Itineraries of Our Lord - Cana of Galilee (1878)
William Hepworth Dixon

Dixon is, of course, working with the wrong modern village Nazareth. However, his comments are otherwise very astute.


More to follow, planned for after our journey to Har Nitai.
