GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
ACCORDING TO JOHN
Van Nattan's questions are in blue and are NOT inspired and final. You do not
have to agree with Steve. Also, if you do not understand something you are reading,
do not stop and dwell on it too long. Just keep reading and deal with what you
4:1 When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and
baptized more disciples than John,
2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but
3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
he must needs 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.
7 There cometh a woman
of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
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.
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.
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou
hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the
well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
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.
15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water,
that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Go,
call thy husband, and come hither.
17 The woman answered and said, I have
no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband:
in that saidst thou truly.
19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that
thou art a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say,
that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21 Jesus saith
unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain,
nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what:
we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23 But the hour cometh,
and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in
truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and
they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
25 The woman
saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is
come, he will tell us all things.
26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto
thee am he.
27 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked
with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with
28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city,
and saith to the men,
29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever
I did: is not this the Christ?
30 Then they went out of the city, and came
31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish
35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest?
behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are
white already to harvest.
36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth
fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice
37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured,
and ye are entered into their labours.
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.
41 And many
more believed because of his own word;
42 And said unto the woman, Now we
believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know
that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
43 Now after two
days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.
44 For Jesus himself testified,
that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.
45 Then when he was come
into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he
did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
46 So Jesus
came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a
certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
47 When he heard that Jesus
was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he
would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
50 Jesus saith
unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus
had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
51 And as he was now going down,
his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
52 Then enquired
he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday
at the seventh hour the fever left him.
53 So the father knew that it was
at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself
believed, and his whole house.
54 This is again the second miracle that Jesus
did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
the key verse of John:
20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ,
Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
to help you decide if you believe the Gospel in John Chapter Four
25-26- Is Jesus the Messiah God sent to Israel? Do you believe he fulfilled the
Old Testament prophecies as best you know them?
41-42- Does this Gospel convince you that Jesus is the ONLY Savior of the world
and the ONLY Savior of you?
49-53- This man believed because a miracle happened. Can you believe in Jesus
by just reading this Gospel of John, even if you don't get the warm fuzzies or
some flash of light? Can you believe this Gospel just because it is true?
