In the Gospel of John it says that the miracle took place during a wedding in Cana in Galilee. Modern pilgrims come to the city of Kafr Kanna in northern Israel. But scientists have found Christian caves eight kilometers to the north. I assume that this was the real place of a miracle, reports the Daily Mail.
Archaeologists have discovered on the hills of the ancient settlement Khirbet Kana. It is dated in 323 BC E. – 324 C. E. E. Here are caves, painted crosses and references to & # 39; Lord Jesus & # 39 ;. Inside we found an altar of stones, six stone ships that held the wine. Which of them could serve at a wedding, I think.
There were three places that could work. But none of them has so much evidence, says Tom Mackellar, who led the excavations. The place was visited by pilgrims at the end of V – VI centuries, It was also visited by the crusaders. The Jewish historian Josephus probably wrote about that.
"Joseph, the New Testament and rabbinic texts claim that Kahn was a Jewish village near the Sea of Galilee and lower Galilee, and Khirbet Kana meets all these criteria," says Mackellar.
Modern Kahn was not considered a holy place until 1,700 years. This status gave her the Franciscan monks who were looking for easy ways, and not historical accuracy, according to the scientist.
