JESUS, OUR SAVIOUR


“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” Romans
3:23.

“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his
word is not in us” I John 1:10.

In Jeremiah 10:23, the prophet wrote, “O Lord, I know that the


way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct
his steps.”

Since we cannot save ourselves, we must have a Saviour. Although


we have sinned, God loves us and has sent His only begotten Son
into the world to die in our stead. But, to be saved, we must
accept this Saviour. Therefore, we must study to learn what He
wants us to do.

Let us study now to learn what a wonderful Saviour we have.

name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The
everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 35:5–6a — “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the
lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing:”
Jeremiah 31:15 — “Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in
Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rachel weeping for
her children refused to be comforted for her children, because
they were not.” (This was a prophecy about Herod killing the
children.)
Micah 5:2 — “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be
little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he
come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings
forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” (This tells us
that Bethlehem is to be the birthplace of Jesus.)
Psalms 72:1, 10, 17 — “Give the king thy judgments, O God,
and thy righteousness unto the king's son.”
“The kings of Tarshish and the isles shall bring presents; the
kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts” (Psalm 72:10). What
is this a prophecy of?
5

“His name shall endure forever: his name shall be continued as


long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations
shall call him blessed” (Psalm 72:17).

Be sure you can say the books of both the Old Testament and

LESSON 4
Jesus Loves All People
Jesus Talked with the Woman at the Well
John 4:3–30, 39–42
Memory Verse: John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten
Son. tjat whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but
have everlasting life.”
Underline the correct words.
Jesus left Judea and went to (Perea, Galilee). He had to go
through (Samaria, Jordan). In the city of (Bethany, Sychar)
there was (Joseph's, Jacob's) well. Because Jesus was (tired,
troubled) he sat on the well about the (sixth, third) hour, or
noon. His disciples went into the city (to buy meat, to get a
colt).
A woman of (Judea, Samaria) came to the well to get water.
Jesus said to her, (“You should not get water here,” “Give me a
drink”). Because Jesus was a (Jew, Samaritan), the woman was
surprised that He spoke to her; for the Jews had nothing to do
with the (Samaritans, Galileans). In fact, the Jews (loved,
hated) Samaritans.

15
Jesus told her that if she had known who spoke to her, she
would have asked Him (to draw water for her, for living water).
She asked Jesus if He were greater than (Jacob, Abraham) who
gave them the well. Jesus answered by saying that a person
who drinks of the water He has to give will never (come to the
well again, thirst). The woman (wanted this water, walked
away).
Jesus told her to go and get her (father, husband). She said
she did not have a (father, husband). Jesus said she had
answered (correctly, falsely), because she had been married
(five, two) times and that the man she was with then (was, was
not) really her husband. The woman began to believe Jesus
was a (preacher, prophet).
The Samaritans worshipped in a (mountain, cave) and the Jews
worshipped in (Bethlehem, Jerusalem). Jesus said the time has
come when true worshippers will worship God (in spirit and in
truth, in their nearest city). The woman knew that when the
Messiah or the Christ came, he would be able to (help them,
tell them all things). Jesus said unto her, “I that speak to you
am he.”
When the disciples came back to the well, they were (happy,
surprised) that Jesus talked with the Samaritan woman.
She left her (waterpot, bonnet) and went into the (city, house).
She told all the men to come and see a man who told her (a
few things, all things she ever did). She asked, “Is not this (the
Christ, our forefathers)?” Because of the woman's report (a
few, many) Samaritans believed on Jesus. At the invitation of
the Samaritans, Jesus stayed with them (one, two) days. Many
more of them believed because of (Jesus' own words, the
woman's report). They said, “Now we (believe, guess) and
(know, doubt) that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the
world.
Jesus (loved, despised) these people of Samaria even though
they were not Jews, and even though the Jews did not like
them (very much, at all).
Here are some scriptures about the love of God and His Son,
Jesus Christ: find them in your New Testament and fill in the
blanks.

16
I John 4:8 — “He that does not ______, knows not _______;
for God is ________.”

I John 4:10 — “Herein is love, not that we _________ God, but


that he _________ us, and send his Son to be the propitiation

____________us.”
