John 4:43-54 describes Jesus’ healing of an official’s son. Carson observes that this passage bears a good deal of similarity to Matthew 8:5-13 and Luke 7:2-10. There are also significant differences (Carson 1991, 233). The adult is a royal official with a son, not a servant, in need. It is not altogether clear to Carson and others what home of Jesus is referred to - Galilee or Nazareth - in verses 44-45. Carson notes numerous possibilities (Carson 1991, 235). Regardless, Carson observes Jesus was not honored as he deserved. The official, however, does seek help. His son is dying and he hopes Jesus can heal him (Carson 1991, 238). Jesus makes it clear that faith should be in him, not merely in miracles (Carson 1991, 239).
