Short Study of the Book of John Part 2

Short Study  of the Book of John  Part 2 Lesson Objective:  To continue the study of the Book of John and further understand the importance of the book for new believers Scripture: Chapters 2-4 Chapter 2 Christ turns water into wine – first miracle John 2: 3-4 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. Why did Christ respond to his mother in such a “disrespectful” way? What does this teach us about how we make request im prayer? Christ cleans the temple John 2: 12-22 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise. 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. (Psalm 69:9) We must be careful of what we do in the Church that may not be consistent with the respect that we should have for the Church Christ understood the hearts of man Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did. 24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, 25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man They still did not see him as Savior/God but only a miracle worker man Chapter 3 John 3: 1-21 is the focus of the Book of John and new believers must understand this concept Main verses John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved John understands fully his role as a witness for Christ 3: 21-36 Chapter 4 John continues his defense that Christ is the Savior Story of the Samaritan woman at the well 4: 9-10  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. 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. 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 Christ demonstrates the true meaning of devoting ourselves to the task at hand 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” 33 Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?” “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. Story of the Nobleman who asked for his son to be healed They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.” “Unless you people see signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.” 49 The royal official said, “Sir, come down before my child dies.”
