Part 1- Go to the Weary One - John 4:1-8

Joe Focht  SAM616  3/2/2008

The Jews "had no dealings with Samaritans'' in the time of Jesus. For hundreds of years hatred grew between them. Samaritans were half-breeds, not fully Jew or Gentile. When Jesus-wearied from His own journey- encountered a Samaritan woman at Jacob's well, He did not see her with the hatred many in the culture did. He saw a woman who was weary. Weary from a life of sin and heartache. Are you weary? Jesus said, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

  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 his disciples,)
  3. He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
  4. And 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.)
