Four week Bible study: John 4:1-42
' "Come see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?"
... Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of the woman's testimony.'
In the early pages of John’s Gospel we find Jesus deeply immersed in His own Jewish culture on mission to His own people, ministering in His own language, culture and religious heritage.
In chapter 4 Jesus’ direction changes dramatically. He travels from the Jewish heartland to the marginal region of Samaria. This transition is not only geographical, Jesus crosses barriers of culture, ethnicity, gender and social convention, to the amazement of all.
