Today we are going to look at the second miraculous sign that John records in his gospel. This sign involves an encounter with an official who wants Jesus to travel with him to his hometown 20 miles away to heal his son. Jesus tells the man to go home as his child will be healed. Does the man walk home in faith? Are the words of Jesus enough or does this man need to see the miracle?
John highlights seven miracles in his gospel that he calls signs. They are signs of the coming Kingdom and the power of the King. Divisional Commander Paul Hateley shares with us how the Kingdom is revealed to him through the story of John's first 'sign', the turning of water into wine.
