JOHN – 4: 2-14, JESUS DEALS WITH THE SAMARITAN WOMAN

Praise the Lord God everyone!  As we continue our scripture study on the Deity of Jesus, keep in mind to search the scriptures for yourselves to see what the Holy Spirit will reveal to you.  ADDITIONALLY, recognize the time that we are living in, the Lord is soon to come!

I HAVE ONLY COVERED VERSE 1, SO FAR,  NOW, LET US GET INTO THE REST OF THE CHAPTER!!  AND HERE WE GO!

2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
REFERENCE:
1 Corinthians 1:17 King James Version (KJV)
17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.

4 And he must needs go through Samaria.
QUESTION – Why go through Samaria?
5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

6 Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

Jesus deals with the Samaria Woman from verses 7 to 29.

7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (1st of 7 times Jesus speaks to the Woman.)

8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
REFERENCE:
(Peter speaking)
Acts 10:28 King James Version (KJV)
28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.

Jesus speaking with the Woman had the effect of Verses 39-40
REFERENCE:
John 4:39-40 King James Version (KJV)
39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.
40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.

REFERENCE:
2 Kings 17:24 King James Version (KJV)
24 And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.

Jesus also gives us insight about the Samaritans:
REFERENCE:
Matthew 10:5-6 King James Version (KJV)
5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Jesus again is passing through Samaria, and encounters a different reception.
REFERENCE:
Luke 9:52-53 King James Version (KJV)
52 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
53 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.
Jesus also Showed a Samaritan in another light:
REFERENCES:
This is a view of a pharisee lawyer:

Luke 10:29-32 King James Version (KJV)
29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?
30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

Luke 10:33-37 King James Version (KJV)
33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
(2nd of 7 times Jesus speaks to the Woman.)

The Gift Jesus mentioned is found in Romans:
REFERENCE:
Romans 5:15 King James Version (KJV)
Read Romans 5:12-15
15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

REFERENCE:
John 7:38-39 King James Version (KJV)
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

The Jew also ask Jesus a similar question, concerning Jacob but he elevated it to Abraham:
REFERENCE:
John 8:53-58 King James Version (KJV)
53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
(3rd of 7 times Jesus speaks to the Woman.)
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
REFERENCES:
John 7:37-39 King James Version (KJV)
37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
REFERENCE: Exodus 17 is significant because of the WATER.
Exodus 17:5-6 King James Version (KJV)
5 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.
6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.

NEXT JOHN 4:15, THE WOMAN’S RESPONSE, AS ALL SHOULD DO AFTER HEARING THE WORD OF THE LORD!
