Kfar kanna has been identified, as of the middle-ages, with the New Testament’s village of “Kanna”, at which Jesus had performed his first miracle.
“The wedding at Kanna” is the miracle at which Jesus had turned water into whine. Today, there are two churches commemorating the event: “The Wedding Church” (Franciscan) and a “Greek-Orthodox Church”.
Two other churches, in the village: “The church of St. Bartolommeo” (Franciscan) and the “Melkite Greek-Catholic Church”, all aim at commemorating the miracles.
The village is sited in several other places throughout the New Testament. All citations refer to miracles that Jesus had perfumed, such as the healing of the son of one of the King’s clerks.
The village is located in the Lower Galilee (north of Israel). The village nowadays has nearly 20,000 residents, only part is Christian (some 12%).
