Jesus’ healing was confirmed. The royal official wasn’t simply satisfied to have his son healed. He wanted to know about Jesus whether He was really responsible for this miracle. This healing was confirmed as a fact, with precision, and it served as a sign of Jesus’ true identity.
As he was now going down, his slaves met him, saying that his son was living. So he inquired of them the hour when he began to get better. Then they said to him, “Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.” So the father knew that it was at that hour in which Jesus said to him, “Your son lives”; and he himself believed and his whole household. This is again a second sign that Jesus performed when He had come out of Judea into Galilee.
