Bible Text: John 4 | Preacher: Michael Wong | Series: Special Topic | 約翰福音4 (CUV)
1主知道法利賽人聽見他收門徒,施洗,比約翰還多,
2(其實不是耶穌親自施洗,乃是他的門徒施洗,)
3他就離了猶太,又往加利利去。
4必須經過撒瑪利亞,
5於是到了撒瑪利亞的一座城,名叫敘加,靠近雅各給他兒子約瑟的那塊地。
6在那裡有雅各井;耶穌因走路困乏,就坐在井旁。那時約有午正。
7有一個撒瑪利亞的婦人來打水。耶穌對他說:「請你給我水喝。」
8(那時門徒進城買食物去了。〉
9撒瑪利亞的婦人對他說:「你既是猶太人,怎麼向我一個撒馬利亞婦人要水喝呢?」原來猶太人和撒瑪利亞人沒有來往。
10耶穌回答說:「你若知道神的恩賜,和對你說『給我水喝』的是誰,你必早求他,他也必早給了你活水。」
11婦人說:「先生,沒有打水的器具,井又深,你從那裡得活水呢?
12我們的祖宗雅各將這井留給我們,他自己和兒子並牲畜也都喝這井裡的水,難道你比他還大嗎?」
13耶穌回答說:凡喝這水的還要再渴;
14人若喝我所賜的水就永遠不渴。我所賜的水要在他裡頭成為泉源,直湧到永生。」
15婦人說:「先生,請把這水賜給我,叫我不渴,也不用來這麼遠打水。」
16耶穌說:「你去叫你丈夫也到這裡來。」
17婦人說:「我沒有丈夫。」耶穌說:「你說沒有丈夫是不錯的。
18你已經有五個丈夫,你現在有的並不是你的丈夫。你這話是真的。」
19婦人說:先生,我看出你是先知。
20我們的祖宗在這山上禮拜,你們倒說,應當禮拜的地方是在耶路撒冷。」
21耶穌說:婦人,你當信我。時候將到,你們拜父,也不在這山上,也不在耶路撒冷。
22你們所拜的,你們不知道;我們所拜的,我們知道,因為救恩是從猶太人出來的。
23時候將到,如今就是了,那真正拜父的,要用心靈和誠實拜他,因為父要這樣的人拜他。
24神是個靈(或無個字),所以拜他的必須用心靈和誠實拜他。」
25婦人說:「我知道彌賽亞(就是那稱為基督的)要來;他來了,必將一切的事都告訴我們。」
26耶穌說:「這和你說話的就是他!」
27當下門徒回來,就希奇耶穌和一個婦人說話;只是沒有人說:「你是要甚麼?」或說:「你為甚麼和他說話?」
28那婦人就留下水罐子,往城裡去,對眾人說:
29「你們來看!有一個人將我素來所行的一切事都給我說出來了,莫非這就是基督嗎?」
30眾人就出城,往耶穌那裡去。
31這其間,門徒對耶穌說:「拉比,請吃。」
32耶穌說:「我有食物吃,是你們不知道的。」
33門徒就彼此對問說:「莫非有人拿甚麼給他吃嗎?」
34耶穌說:「我的食物就是遵行差我來者的旨意,做成他的工。
35你們豈不說『到收割的時候還有四個月』嗎?我告訴你們,舉目向田觀看,莊稼已經熟了(原文是發白),可以收割了。
36收割的人得工價,積蓄五穀到永生,叫撒種的和收割的一同快樂。
37俗語說::『那人撒種,這人收割』,這話可見是真的。
38我差你們去收你們所沒有勞苦的;別人勞苦,你們享受他們所勞苦的。」
39那城裡有好些撒瑪利亞人信了耶穌,因為那婦人作見證說:「他將我素來所行的一切事都給我說出來了。」
40於是撒瑪利亞人來見耶穌,求他在他們那裡住下,他便在那裡住了兩天。
41因耶穌的話,信的人就更多了,
42便對婦人說:「現在我們信,不是因為你的話,是我們親自聽見了,知道這真是救世主。」
43過了那兩天,耶穌離了那地方,往加利利去。
44因為耶穌自己作過見證說:「先知在本地是沒有人尊敬的。」
45到了加利利,加利利人既然看見他在耶路撒冷過節所行的一切事,就接待他,因為他們也是上去過節。
46耶穌又到了加利利的迦拿,就是他從前變水為酒的地方。有一個大臣,他的兒子在迦百農患病。
47他聽見耶穌從猶太到了加利利,就來見他,求他下去醫治他的兒子,因為他兒子快要死了。
48耶穌就對他說:「若不看見神蹟奇事,你們總是不信。」
49那大臣說:「先生,求你趁著我的孩子還沒有死就下去。」
50耶穌對他說:「回去吧,你的兒子活了!」那人信耶穌所說的話就回去了。
51正下去的時候,他的僕人迎見他,說他的兒子活了。
52他就問甚麼時候見好的。他們說:「昨日未時熱就退了。」
53他便知道這正是耶穌對他說「你兒子活了」的時候;他自己和全家就都信了。
54這是耶穌在加利利行的第二件神蹟,是他從猶太回去以後行的。
John 4 (ESV)
Jesus and the Woman of Samaria

4 Now when Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John 2 (although Jesus himself did not baptize, but only his disciples), 3 he left Judea and departed again for Galilee. 4 And he had to pass through Samaria. 5 So he came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the field that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there; so Jesus, wearied as he was from his journey, was sitting beside the well. It was about the sixth hour.[a]

7 A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink.” 8 (For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.) 9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) 10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” 11 The woman said to him, “Sir, you have nothing to draw water with, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob? He gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did his sons and his livestock.” 13 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again.[b] The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” 15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water.”

16 Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.” 17 The woman answered him, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You are right in saying, ‘I have no husband’; 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one you now have is not your husband. What you have said is true.” 19 The woman said to him, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you say that in Jerusalem is the place where people ought to worship.” 21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 25 The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ). When he comes, he will tell us all things.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.”

27 Just then his disciples came back. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but no one said, “What do you seek?” or, “Why are you talking with her?” 28 So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” 30 They went out of the town and were coming to him.

31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” 33 So the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought him something to eat?” 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. 35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. 36 Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. 37 For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.”

39 Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me all that I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. 41 And many more believed because of his word. 42 They said to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.”

43 After the two days he departed for Galilee. 44 (For Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in his own hometown.) 45 So when he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, having seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the feast. For they too had gone to the feast.

Jesus Heals an Official’s Son
46 So he came again to Cana in Galilee, where he had made the water wine. And at Capernaum there was an official whose son was ill. 47 When this man heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went to him and asked him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. 48 So Jesus said to him, “Unless you[c] see signs and wonders you will not believe.” 49 The official said to him, “Sir, come down before my child dies.” 50 Jesus said to him, “Go; your son will live.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and went on his way. 51 As he was going down, his servants[d] met him and told him that his son was recovering. 52 So he asked them the hour when he began to get better, and they said to him, “Yesterday at the seventh hour[e] the fever left him.” 53 The father knew that was the hour when Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” And he himself believed, and all his household. 54 This was now the second sign that Jesus did when he had come from Judea to Galilee.
