Cana of Galilee

Cana is northern part of Israel in Galilee. Holy Bible in scripted about this place because of the miracle our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ performed during Apostasy Age. Our Lord was present at a weeding held in Cana, with His Mother Saint Virgin Mary and the disciples.

When they ran out of wine, Holy Mother said to Him, “They have no wine.” Lord Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.” There were set there six water pots of stone. Jesus said to them. “Fill the water pots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. He said to them, “Draw some out now and take it to the master of the feast.”

When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, he said to the bridegroom, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine and when the guests have well drunk, then that which is inferior; but you have kept the good wine until now.” (John 2:1-11)

Ethiopian Orthodox Incarnation Church celebrates the commemoration of the miracle that our Lord Jesus Christ performed at Cana of Galilee, on Tir 12. It was the first miracle that our Lord Jesus did after His baptism.

Though this miracle was done on Yekatit 23, our Patristics Fathers changed the celebration day to Tir 12, where the water was changed to wine, following the baptism of Jesus since both are holidays are done by water.

Glory to God!
