John 4:46-54
46 So Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum. 47 When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and implored Him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. 48 Then Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe.”

49 The nobleman said to Him, “Sir, come down before my child dies!”

50 Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your son lives.” So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way. 51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him and told him, saying, “Your son lives!”

52 Then he inquired of them the hour when he got better. And they said to him, “Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.” 53 So the father knew that it was at the same hour in which Jesus said to him, “Your son lives.” And he himself believed, and his whole household.

54 This again is the second sign Jesus did when He had come out of Judea into Galilee.


The royal official to Jesus: “Sir, do come down at once before my child dies!”

Jesus: “Go, your son will live.”

The man took Jesus at His word / The man believed what Jesus said to him and departed / started home.

While he was still on the way / going down the road, his servants met him with the news / reported that his boy was living and was healthy.

When he inquired as to the time when / at what time his son got better / began to get better, they said to him, “Yesterday, at one in the afternoon / Yesterday during the seventh hour, the fever left him.”

Then the father realized that this was the exact time / that very hour at which Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live / lives.” So he and his whole / his entire household believed.
