Bible study: Book of John

Posted on November 13, 2020 at 1:35 PM

John 4:

It's stating the obvious to say that Jesus 'knew what he was doing'!

He knew everything about the "woman at the well". Even his disciples accepted that he would talk to a Samaritan - but were surprised that he spoke to a woman!!! Not only was she of dubious character (4 husbands and living with another), but was probably lower class and looked down on by her neighbours.

Notice how Jesus steers the conversation from water to living water. A parallel with Nicodemus and being born again.

The disciples also took his reference to food literally. Surely we do the same thing - taking God's word and trying to apply it to our earthly lives rather than seeing the spiritual meaning?

But the woman preached (or gossiped?) the gospel to her neighbours more effectively than the disciples could.

Is it better to be "so spiritually minded that you are no earthly use" or "so earthly minded that you're no spiritual use"?

Her question about the correct place for worship is irrelevant today. What can we learn from Jesus' reply? That God is not interested in where we worship, but "man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." 1 Sam 17:7.

We must worship in Spirit and in truth'. Truth is not about correct doctrine on physical things (bread, wine, music, head covering) but "you delight in truth in the inward being.." Psalm 51:6
