3. The Need of the Dying -- Life's Healing
a. Christ Coming Back to Visit the Place
of Weak and Fragile People
43 And after the two days He went forth from there into Galilee,
44 For Jesus Himself testified that aa prophet has 1no honor in his own country.
45 Then when He came into Galilee, the Galileans received Him, having seen all that He did in Jerusalem at the feast, for they also went to the feast.
46 He then came again to 1aCana of 2Galilee, where He had bmade the water wine. And there was a certain royal official, whose son was sick in Capernaum.
b. The Weak and Fragile People Dying
47 When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and asked Him to come down and heal his son, for he was about to die.
48 Jesus therefore said to him, Unless you see asigns and wonders, you will by no means believe.
49 The royal official said to Him, Sir, come down before my little child dies.
c. Healing by the Life-giving Word and through Believing
50 Jesus said to him, Go, your son lives. The man believed the 1word which Jesus said to him and went his way.
51 And as he was now going down, his slaves met him and said that his child was living.
52 So he asked them the hour in which he got better. They said then to him, Yesterday at the 1seventh hour the fever left him.
53 Then the father knew that it was in that hour in which Jesus said to him, Your son lives; and he believed, he and his whole house.
54 Again, this 1asecond sign Jesus performed when He came out of Judea into Galilee.
