Jesus Heals an Official’s Son

This is a simplified version of the Bible story found in John 4:43-54, written for children to understand. For the original version, please refer to the Bible passage.

Jesus went to a town called Galilee after being in Jerusalem for a while. When he arrived, the people of Galilee welcomed him with open arms because they had heard about all the amazing things he had done.

Jesus went to a town called Cana in Galilee, where He turned water into wine at a wedding. While He was there, an official came to Him and asked Him to heal his son. The official’s son was very sick and almost about to die. Jesus said, “You won’t believe me unless you see a miracle.”

But the official said, “Sir, please come to my house or my son will die.” Jesus replied, “Go home. Your son is healed.” The official believed what Jesus said and went home.

While the official was on his way home, his servants met him and told him that his son was getting better. The official asked them when his son started feeling better, and they told him, “Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.”

The father realized that it was the exact time when Jesus told him that his son would live. This made the father believe in Jesus, and his whole family also believed in Him.

This was the second miracle that Jesus did in Galilee after coming from Judea.
