John 4:43-54New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
Jesus Heals an Official’s Son
43 After the two days, Jesus left for Galilee. 44 He himself had pointed out that a prophet is not respected in his own country. 45 When he arrived in Galilee, the people living there welcomed him. They had seen everything he had done in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast. That was because they had also been there.
46 Once more, Jesus visited Cana in Galilee. Cana is where he had turned the water into wine. A royal official was there. His son was sick in bed at Capernaum. 47 The official heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea. So he went to Jesus and begged him to come and heal his son. The boy was close to death.
48 Jesus told him, “You people will never believe unless you see signs and wonders.”
49 The royal official said, “Sir, come down before my child dies.”
50 “Go,” Jesus replied. “Your son will live.”
The man believed what Jesus said, and so he left. 51 While he was still on his way home, his slaves met him. They gave him the news that his boy was living. 52 He asked what time his son got better. They said to him, “Yesterday, at one o’clock in the afternoon, the fever left him.”
53 Then the father realized what had happened. That was the exact time Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” So he and his whole family became believers.
54 This was the second sign that Jesus did after coming from Judea to Galilee.
