Women of Great Faith

James Spruell, Ph.D.


The Woman at the Well

(Continued from page 2)

A lesson learned

Ahhh, but the story's not over, not quite. The Samaritan woman displayed considerable knowledge in the questions and comments that she posed of the Savior. She was not ignorant by any means but was earnestly seeking the truth, her heart was prepared and ready.

As Paul Harvey often related on his radio broadcasts, 'And now for the rest of the story...' the 'one' on hearing his message then turned to help convert many of the '99'. The Samaritans saw no mighty miracle by mortal standards but the miracle of the heart swayed by a Savior's love:

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. ...John 4: 39-43


Lessons Learned:

  1. Bible check -- How does the declaration by the Samaritans that Jesus is 'Christ, the Saviour' match up time-wise with other recorded declarations? For example, that of Peter?

  2. In the video clip, Jesus Teaches a Samaritan Woman, the opening scene reveals the Lord patiently waiting for the Samaritan Woman, just as he patiently waits for each of us. What does that tell you about your importance and personal relationship with Christ?

Mary, the Mother of Christ Video The video, produced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is from Mormon Messages... and well worth another peek... just in case you missed it! 3:56
