Book Of John - Chapter 4 Part B - Bible Study

Day 4 - Chapter 4 Part B

Chapter 4 – NASB Translation
Disciples worrying about hunger and food
31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging Him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” 32 But He said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” 33 So the disciples were saying to one another, “No one brought Him anything to eat, did he?” 

Spiritual Food or Fuel for the spiritual soul is to understand and do the Will Of GOD.
Do we know our GOD’s purpose in this world? Or is it just to cook, eat & sleep with few minutes to ponder on GOD’s goodness between these activities?
Let’s take a hard look and ask GOD for revelation.
34 Jesus *said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work. 35 
Jesus also reveals the purpose. We have a harvest to reap. That we should take part of.
35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. 36 Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37 For in this case the saying is true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”

Testimony of the Samaritan Woman reaps more souls
39 From that city many of the Samaritans believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all the things that I have done.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to Jesus, they were asking Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days. 

Salvation for everyone.

Know that Jews never go thru the city of Sychar or Samaria while travelling from Judea to Galilee. LORD Jesus not only preaches but HE stays there for 2 days.

40 So when the Samaritans came to Jesus, they were asking Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days. 

Samaritans become a testimony
41 Many more believed because of His word; 42 and they were saying to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this One is indeed the Savior of the world.”

Good WELCOME in Galilee
Remember JESUS was not honored at HIS home town/country before as they saw HIM as the Son of Joseph -the Mason (not Carpenter. Greek’s translation means Masonry which also involves Carpentry)
Witnessing the miracles had changed the hearts of Galileans. Yes, unbelievers need testimony and witness.

43 After the two days He went forth from there into Galilee. 44 For Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country. 45 So when He came to Galilee, the Galileans received Him, having seen all the things that He did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they themselves also went to the feast.

Healing a Nobleman’s Son

46 Therefore He came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a royal official whose son was sick at Capernaum. 47 When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and was imploring Him to come down and heal his son; for he was at the point of death. 
Healing thru Faith
JESUS HIMSELF talks about how HE noticed people needing signs and wonders based on HIS experience with Galileans. Prayers are fully answered thru faith for the one who believes GOD and HIS wonderous miracles without witnessing.
So Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see [g]signs and wonders, you simply will not believe.” 49 The royal official *said to Him, “[h]Sir, come down before my child dies.” 50 Jesus *said to him, “Go; your son lives.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and started off. 51 As he was now going down, his slaves met him, saying that his [i]son was living. 52 So he inquired of them the hour when he began to get better. Then they said to him, “Yesterday at the [j]seventh hour the fever left him.” 53 So the father knew that it was at that hour in which Jesus said to him, “Your son lives”; and he himself believed and his whole household
Second Sign in Cana because of Faith
·       Water to Wine – Mary believed
·       Healing of the Royal Official’s Son – He believed.
This is again a second [k]sign that Jesus performed when He had come out of Judea into Galilee.
