Herod the tetrarch, having been criticized by John
concerning Herodias, his brother's wife,
and all the evil things which Herod did,
added also this above all: he locked up John in prison.
After the arrest of John
Jesus came in the power of the Spirit into Galilee,
saying, "The time has been fulfilled,
and near is the sovereignty of God;
change your minds and believe in the good message of God."
News went out
through the whole country around concerning him,
and he taught in their synagogues, being praised by all.
The Galileans welcomed him,
for they too had gone to the feast
and had seen everything he had done
in Jerusalem at the feast.
So he came again to Cana of Galilee,
where he had made the water wine.
There was a certain royal official
whose son was ill at Capernaum;
this one having heard
that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee,
went to him and asked that he come down and cure his son;
for he was about to die.
So Jesus said to him, "Unless you see miracles and omens,
you will not believe at all."
The royal official said to him,
"Lord, come down before my child dies."
Jesus said to him, "Go, your son lives."
The person believed the word which Jesus said to him,
and he went; and as he was going down,
the servants met him, saying that his boy lives.
So he inquired of them
the hour in which he had gotten better;
they said to him,
"Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him."
Therefore the father knew that that was the hour
in which Jesus said to him, "Your son lives."
And he and his whole household believed.
This second miracle Jesus did coming from Judea to Galilee.
