The story of Cana for Little Kids

This map shows the city of Cana where Jesus performed his first miracle: turning water into wine.

Jesus, his mother Mary, and the disciples were all invited to a wedding in the town of Cana. Cana is a few miles north of the town of Nazareth in the region of Galilee. While celebrating, the hosting family ran out of wine so Jesus told their servants to fill six very large stone pots all the way up with water. Then Jesus told them to take some of it out to the host of the party; when they did the man drank the water, but it wasn't water anymore it was turned into wine!

Isn't it great that the very first miracle of Jesus recorded in the Bible was for a celebration of marriage? Marriage is beautiful and worthy of celebrating! Now you know where the town of Cana is, where Jesus turned water into wine.

John 2:11 - This was the first big work that Jesus did. It was in Cana in Galilee. He showed that he was great. And his disciples believed in him.

Geography and ancient cities are important to study as we learn from the Bible, let's pray:

Dear Jesus, thank you for turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana. Thank you for all of the miracles you performed which show us how amazing and loving you are. Help us to trust and obey you more and more each day. In Jesus name... Amen!
