“Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:48 Unless ye see signs and wonders - Although the Samaritans believed without them.
Joh 4:48 Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. The nobleman, in his sore distress, had some faith, caused only by the fame of the "signs and wonders" wrought. His faith was still imperfect, far below the holy trust of the Samaritans. He is the type of a class whose belief depended on outward signs.
