John 4:6 - 4:26 Bible Verses

Today I am sharing John 4:6 - 4:26 Bible Verses.  I heard John 4:10 the other day, and felt that I needed to share these 5 verses with all of you.  This is the story of Jesus at the well with the Samarian woman

Joh 4:6  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.
Joh 4:7  There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
Joh 4:8  (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
Joh 4:9  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.
Joh 4:10  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. 
Joh 4:11  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?
Joh 4:12  Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 
Joh 4:13  Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 
Joh 4:14  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. 
Joh 4:15  The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. 
Joh 4:16  Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither
Joh 4:17  The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: 
Joh 4:18  For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly
Joh 4:19  The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. 
Joh 4:20  Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. 
Joh 4:21  Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father
Joh 4:22  Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews
Joh 4:23  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
Joh 4:24  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth
Joh 4:25  The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. 

Joh 4:26  Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he

After reading these verses, I shared them with my friend Karen.  She and I spoke about what a miracle this whole conversation was.

The woman at the well was a Samarian and Jesus was a Jew.  They were speaking different languages, and she didn't understand how they could understand each other.  While Jesus was speaking of being filled with the spirit and having everlasting life, she was still only thinking of regular water.  Then when she said "give me this water", (she was starting to understand, and then in her next sentence reverted back to) so that I will never be thirsty again and not come back here to draw water again.

Next Jesus tells her to go and get her husband, to which her reply is I don't have one.  Jesus tells her no you don't, you have had 5 and the current one is not your husband either.  She at this point says he is a prophet, and and talks about praying on the mountain or in Jerusalem.  Jesus tells her that there will not be a need to worship on the mountain or in Jerusalem, because God is a spirit and they will worship him in spirit and truth.  She says she knows the Messiah is coming, that he is Christ, and when he comes he will reveal all things.

Jesus then responds: I that speak unto thee am he

What a miracle this whole conversation was.

I have departed from the Bible Study right now, but may pick it up again later.  I would love to hear what you are interested in reading about.

Have a Blessed Day.

  1. This is a great set of verses and there is always something new to learn from them. I never knew they were speaking different languages but of course it was no issue with Jesus!
