Welcome to an in-depth study of John 4, focusing on Jesus' visit to the Samaritan town of Sychar, where He encounters a woman at the well and engages her in one of the most captivating conversations you will ever read in the Bible. The end result is that both the woman and her fellow townspeople come to believe in Jesus as Savior, King and Living Water.Best-selling author Wayne Davies provides a compelling analysis of how Jesus reveals His true identity to this outcast woman in a way that changes her heart and her life from the inside out. The woman is so enthralled with Jesus that she leaves her water jar at the well and heads into town to tell the people she has just met the Christ, the long-awaited Jewish Messiah! After spending time with Jesus, many other Samaritans also come to the conclusion that this Man is indeed the Savior of the world.There is no other account in the gospels quite like this one. Only in John 4 do we see an entire group of people come to faith in such a short period of time. And it happens to the despised Samaritans! In this book, the author answers two questions critical to a proper understanding of the text: Question #1: What does this passage teach us about Jesus?Key chapters cover the meaning of the three names for Jesus found in John 4: Jesus as "Savior," Jesus as "King" (the Christ/Messiah), and Jesus as "the Living Water." Each of these titles is a wonderful manifestation of the uniqueness of the one and only Son of God. Come and learn about the incomparable glory of Jesus as revealed in the text of John's inspired account.Question #2: What is our response to this teaching?John wrote his gospel so that we would "believe" that Jesus is who He said He was. But what is biblical faith? And how do we know if we have genuine faith rather than counterfeit faith? Through use of parallel passages, the author unpacks the meaning of both saving faith and non-saving faith, so you'll be able to "examine yourself" (per 2 Corinthians 13:5) to determine whether you are a true believer."Jesus: Savior, King, Living Water" is Part 2 in a series of Bible studies on the Gospel of John. Part 1 was published in 2015 as "Jesus: Who He Is, What He Did and Why It Matters" and covered chapters 1, 2 and 3 of John's Gospel

Volume One is a series of Bible studies (and one important message) from my website that I commenced to build in 1997. It is full of well thought-out observations, Bible quotations, paraphrases and Bible references dealing with prophecy. Mainly with its information I am hoping God will put the Sword (Word of God) through the heart of another theory, (like the Gap and the Day-Age theories) which has crept into the Church's doctrine and has sought to defile the Word of God with its doctrinal germ, and perhaps put to sleep the Pre-Tribulation Rapture and Left Behind theology that's helped cause Saints, including myself, to go astray and backslide.

The relation between Christianity and the claims of reason has been at times sharp and conflicting and at times symbiotic. Noted scholars in the church and in the secular academy have asked what Christianity has to do with culture and what the Christian mind has to say, or should be saying, by way of critique in the marketplace of ideas. In Discovering the Christian Mind, Douglas Vickers argues insightfully that prior to the question of what the Christian mind should be doing or saying is that of what the Christian mind is. Vickers shows that the true identity of the Christian mind derives from the Holy Spirit's conveyance to the soul of the grace of regeneration. The conclusion that regeneration is prior to knowing, and that those know truly who know God truly, challenges thought and opinion.

This study explores the meaning and function of water as a literary symbol in the Gospel of John. Jones first gives an account of symbol: it points beyond itself, it defies clear and definitive perceptual expression, and it in some way embodies that which it represents. Then he examines the narrative sections of John that involve water, plotting the expanding meaning and function of the symbol as the narrative unfolds. The study concludes that water serves primarily as a symbol of the Spirit and therein symbolizes Jesus. The symbol of water calls a wide variety of readers to a decision and functions as a bridge linking the new identity believers receive when they come to faith in Jesus with the traditions from which they came.

This ecumenical collection of essays on Christian initiation from a number of liturgical scholars presents analyses of ancient sources and challenges to the traditional interpretations of those sources, an investigation of the development and meaning of "confirmation", descriptions and interpretations of contemporary initiation rites, and a discussion of the challenges and opportunities offered by infant initiation. Many of these essays have long been "required reading" for teachers and students of Christian initiation. They are conveniently collected together here for all who seek a solid foundation in initiatory theology and history leading to an informed pastoral practice in the churches today.

In Jesus the Bridegroom, Brant Pitre once again taps into the wells of Jewish Scripture and tradition, and unlocks the secrets of what is arguably the most well-known symbol of the Christian faith: the cross of Christ. In this thrilling exploration, Pitre shows how the suffering and death of Jesus was far more than a tragic Roman execution. Instead, the Passion of Christ was the fulfillment of ancient Jewish prophecies of a wedding, when the God of the universe would wed himself to humankind in an everlasting nuptial covenant. To be sure, most Christians are familiar with the apostle Paul’s teaching that Christ is the ‘Bridegroom’ and the Church is the ‘Bride’. But what does this really mean? And what would ever possess Paul to compare the death of Christ to the love of a husband for his wife? If you would have been at the Crucifixion, with Jesus hanging there dying, is that how you would have described it? How could a first-century Jew like Paul, who knew how brutal Roman crucifixions were, have ever compared the execution of Jesus to a wedding? And why does he refer to this as the “great mystery” (Ephesians 5:32)? As Pitre shows, the key to unlocking this mystery can be found by going back to Jewish Scripture and tradition and seeing the entire history of salvation, from Mount Sinai to Mount Calvary, as a divine love story between Creator and creature, between God and Israel, between Christ and his bride—a story that comes to its climax on the wood of a Roman cross. In the pages of Jesus the Bridegroom, dozens of familiar passages in the Bible—the Exodus, the Song of Songs, the Wedding at Cana, the Woman at the Well, the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, and even the Second Coming at the End of Time—are suddenly transformed before our eyes. Indeed, when seen in the light of Jewish Scripture and tradition, the life of Christ is nothing less than the greatest love story ever told.

God's Creative Gift is an in-depth study for the creative Christian. It is intended for both professional and lay artists, for the casual crafter and hobbyist, and for those in both sacred and secular settings. It is for those who see things where others do not and for those whose imaginations cannot be confined by religious dogma and tradition. It is for musicians, singers, painters, sculptors, dancers, dramatists, writers, poets, carvers, weavers, film editors, photographers, filmmakers, architects, designers--anyone who finds inspiration in creativity. Focusing on the creative spirit within, it is designed to help you draw your inspiration from a Deeper Source. It is deeply rooted in Scripture--for the creative Christian must enter into the Word of God on a regular basis in order to know the choreographer of her steps, the crafter of her designs, the author and perfecter of her faith, and the sculptor of her creative heart, soul, mind, and body. And to know Him intimately.

In the Gospel According to John, people ask Jesus some unusual questions. Much of the first half of the gospel is structured around Jesus conversing with individuals or groups of people. Their questions, along with their discussions with Jesus surrounding the questions, make up the jumping off point for this study. Their questions help us explore what it means to ask our own. Each session begins with an opening prayer, followed by the text of the day being read aloud. The group will enjoy a 5-7-minute video where Adam shares his thought on the Scripture and its "unusual" focus. The group will discuss the readings for the day then close with prayer. The new and exciting aspect of this particular Bible study series is the blending of traditional weekly Sunday school with modern, daily-delivered digital content, which will keep readers connected with the material throughout the week. Between the daily communication and the group gatherings, participants will immerse themselves in the Good News. The emails that accompany this study are crucial to the small-group experience and leaders should notify small-group members to subscribe for their emails at least 1-2 days in advance of the first gathering.
