Cana has immense religious importance to the Christian faith. It is mentioned in the New Testament and is relevant to the place of the first miracle that Jesus Christ performed in public. The important question of the actual location of Cana remains a mystery since it remains a matter of speculation. However, the most popular locations thought most likely to be the city of Cana are in Israel, and one in Lebanon. However, regardless of the real position of Cana, this city is held important to many faithful Christians who have a historical and religious connotation attached to it.

The structure of the gospel revolves around the attestation of the divinity of Jesus Christ. Cana symbolizes the first miracle of Jesus that was to be performed among his people and to prove the divine powers he possessed. It was a sign, a message to the world, a path shown of belief in the truth that was Jesus Christ and how his divinity was manifest through his miraculous actions which in this case was to convert plain water into good wine at a wedding ceremony. This transformation of material, one to another, was a sight of powers possessed by the holy, and this first miracle was the opening door to many more to come for those who were to submit and to believe in the divine powers.

The message in this story of the first miracle of Jesus Christ was interpreted in the words of the host of the feast, the governor, who appreciated the good wine that had just been miraculously transformed for the guests and attendees of the ceremony. In his words, the wisdom of hope and belief emerged and translators and scholars have spoken of it in the light of the story of the dark being outshone by the dawn when it is the darkest!

The good wine which had now been produced also referenced to the character of Jesus Christ who had brought it forth for the guests in the first place. Its purity and taste was mirrored in the goodness of the divine, and it was an important lesson to be taken from this story of the New Testament. This story has also been used as evidence of the approval of Jesus for celebration on earth for matters pertaining to it such as that of a wedding occasion.
