John 4.27-54  •  1/20/15


     What fields are white for the harvest? How could the Samaritans, after only knowing Jesus for 2 days, have declared that “...this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.”

     Now-a-days the saying “that a consultant is someone with a brief case who is more than 50 miles from home,” roughly corresponds to what Jesus meant saying “…a prophet has no honor in his own country.”

     Jesus, in Cana, healed the nobleman’s son, in Capernaum - a distance of about 20 miles. You can see that Jesus was not bound by distance - and He’s still not!

     These topics were all part of the discussion last Tuesday, 1/20/15. Next week, 1/27/15, we will begin with John chapter 5.

     I received an email this week asking the following question:     

           "The woman at the well believed in Jesus.  She brought people from her village, who also believed.  They believed He was Messiah, come to restore God’s kingdom on earth.  We have already heard that ‘...whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life’.  This was not yet the Christ of the Cross who died to forgive man’s sins.  Because of their belief, were they given everlasting life?  It says nothing of forgiveness of sins.  Were they still under the Law?  The disciples believed in Jesus (to a point).”
