The bible records over 30 miracles that Jesus performed. John 2:23 indicates that Jesus performed many miraculous signs while attending Passover. But no details are given. The second miracle recorded happened after Jesus returned from Jerusalem to Cana in Galilee. A royal official in Capernaum had a son near death. This man journeyed to Cana to beg Jesus to come and heal his son. Jesus didn’t go. Rather he told the man to go, his son would live. The next day, as the man was traveling home, his servants met him. They told him the boy had been healed. When they compared notes, the official realized that his son had been healed at the exact time when Jesus said the boy would live.
Jesus healed the boy over a distance! He didn’t need to see him or touch him. Capernaum was at least nine miles away as the crow flies, longer if walking on the roads. Yet Jesus healed the boy without even seeing him! The man and all his household believed in Jesus. That’s exactly why the miracles were recorded – believing in Jesus. John 20:30-31 says, “Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
