Woman at the Well

"In that day it shall be that living waters
shall flow from Jerusalem"

Zechariah 14:8
"With joy you will draw water from
the wells of salvation"

Isaiah 12:3

In this Woman at the Well Bible study lesson we find Jesus breaking with three Jewish traditions. First, He travels through Samaria in order to reach Galilee. In Christ's day, because of the pagan ways of the Samaritans, Jews traveling north from Judah would bypass Samaria by taking a longer and more difficult route. 

In this lesson we will see:

  • WhyJews from Judah were opposed to entering Samaria.
  • Why Jesus believed it was imparative that He go to Samaria.
  • How Jesus didn't have a canned approach when sharing the gospel. 
  • What the term living water would have meant to the woman at the well. 
  • Jesus announcing that He was the fulfillment of the Old Testament Passover Feast—God's Lamb—the Messiah.
  • Two confirmations that the woman at the well experienced a genuine conversion.
  • That the most holy place in the world is not a religious building, but where Jesus hangs His hat.
  • How having a natural appetite for the Word of God is evidence that a person has been born-again
  • How the prophecy recorded in Amos 8:11 is being fulfilled today.

Rev. Dr. Dean, Pastor- If you are looking for a man with a fresh perspective to lead your church to another level, consider inviting Jack to come in and lead a series of teaching sessions. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the time. He is competent in handling the scriptures, and has great insight about Biblical truths that are often neglected or simply not taught by design in so many of our churches today. You will not be disappointed if you embark on such a course.

Connie - I can't put the book Under the Cloud down!

David (a Sunday School teacher for Young Marrieds) - It is a great teaching resource that I know is reliable. There are specific topics that I can easily access for use in my class like "The Rock" and I especially liked the section on "Educating the Flesh."

Mary Anne - Under the Cloud is not just another man's opinion, it is all based on Scripture.

Antoinette (who has already purchased over 30 books) - As I give the book to friends and clients, I say to them "put down all the other books you are reading and read this one! I promise you Under the Cloud will change your life."

Julie - I started reading Under the Cloud yesterday and felt enveloped in love, as well as wonderful memories of being taught amazing and powerful truths through two incredible servants of God. Thank You!

Name withheld by us - I will send my husband and son off to the Middle East in Sept. for their second deployment with a copy of your book. (Likely to Afghanistan).

Karen - I am really enjoying your book. It sure is one that I will go back to. I have already marked it up.

John & Jane - We are both enjoying your book so much. Please bring us 10 more signed copies on Thursday.

Rob - My only criticism of the book is that I eventually ran out of pages.

Sally - Your book is fantastic! I just wish I had read it 20 years ago. It would have answered a lot of my questions.

Wayne - I loved the section on "Rigged Fights."
