The Question of Life: Wonder — “Can this be the Christ?”
Words to ponder, words to wonder about. What is life? Where did life come from? Where are we headed in this life? What are the rules of life? Who am I in this life?
What did Jesus say? “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10.
It is easy to see that Jesus is saying that stealing, killing and destroying is not life that is desired. He came to bring the opposite of destroying, stealing and killing life. He came to give us life, an abundant life. But what makes something good and something else evil? What is life really about?
Question of the Week: What was the name of the well where Jesus spoke to the woman from Samaria? If that question is too easy, what was the name of the village nearby, where the woman lived?
Answer: Jacob’s Well was the name of the well where Jesus spoke to the woman from Samaria. Sychar was the name of the village nearby, where the woman lived.
