Jesus was back in Cana in Galilee when a royal official from King Herod’s court found Him and begged Jesus to come and heal his son in Capernaum. We are not told if the man was Jew or Gentile, but he had obliviously heard of Jesus performing miracles and was desperate to have Him heal his boy. But Jesus did something extraordinary…He tells the man to go back home, that his son would recover from his illness. But then this man does something equally as extraordinary…he believes what Jesus is telling him. Seven simple words, spoken emphatically, declared, not merely prophesized…but holding the power to heal. Seven words spoken at a distance but yet yielding the divine power to give life back to a dying child. What caused this man to trust Jesus? Was it the authority in His voice…the assurance in His eyes…the trustworthiness in His manner? Whatever the man saw & heard from Jesus, he went away, convinced his son would live.
