WHERE IS CANA OF GALILEE? At least five candidates have been proposed. Author Tom McCollough believes he has found it at Khirbet Cana (“the ruins of Cana”), almost 9 miles from Nazareth in lower Galilee, where he has codirected the excavation since 2008. Below we see Khirbet Cana overlooking Bet Netopha Valley. In antiquity, the village sat at an important juncture of Roman roads connecting Tarichaea (Magdala) on the Sea of Galilee with Ptolemais (Akko) on the Mediterranean coast.
