According to the New Testament’s Book of John, Jesus Christ turned water into wine at a wedding held in the village of Cana. Yet over the centuries several different sites in the Middle East have been mooted as the true location of Jesus’ first miracle. But now new archaeological discoveries might hold the key to this mystery.

In three of the four gospels of the New Testament – Mathew, Luke and Mark – Jesus actually declines to perform miracles to prove he is the Son of God. But the account of his life given in John is radically different. In that text, Jesus is recorded as carrying out no fewer than seven miracles, including transforming water into wine.
