Sunday School Lesson JESUS TALKS WITH A SAMARITAN WOMAN John 1v.4-4. Golden Text—God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him must worship in spirit and truth— John iv. 24. Religious liberty received its first legal recognition in our country. The American system of spiritual free dom guarantees to every soul the privilege of worshiping God accord ing to the dictates of his own conscience. Our national position upon this subject is the fruit of the teachings of Jesus, who was the pioneer of religious freedom, in His conversation with the unnamed sin ful Samaritan woman at Jacob's well. Bitter prejudices had existed be tween the Jews and the Samaritans for several centuries. Ezra refused to allow any marriages between the two races because the Samaritans were a mongrel people. He declined their offers of assistance in rebuild ing the temple. They were not al lowed to participate in the worship of Jehovah, whom they accepted a.s their God. with the Jews. Nehemiah excommunicated a young priest, who was a member of a prominent family, and expelled him from Jerusalem be cause of his marriage to a Samaritan. “The young priest inaugurated upon Mount Gertzin a rival sanctuary and ritual, to which the Samaritans be came loyal.” While the Jewish re ligion and scriptures broadened, the Sararitans remained a non-pro gressive and conservative religious sect. The Pentateuch Is their only sacred hook. The two similar yet rival faiths fostered a jealousy which increased with the years. The hatred and distrust between the two races were so great that in the days of Jesus "travel between Jerusalem and Galilee took a circuitous route east of the Jordan.” It was due to the army of Rome that serious out breaks and conflicts between the Jews and Samaritans were prevented. Our Lord was not influenced by national or religious prejudices. He ignored them unless they were forced upon Him. He judged men by their character and without prejudice. He was thus able to put Himself in their place and win their hearts. The Master did not confide His work to the synagogue or the Sabbath, but He used every opportunity presented to win souls. He placed His stamp of approval upon personal evangel ism by His individual efforts to save the lost. He followed His usual practice, when the poor Samaritan woman with a past, whose life, even in that period of lax divorce, was a public scandal, drew near to draw water. It was due to her sinful ca reer that she came at noon to Jacob’s well, where the weary Lord was rest ing. Wellside Ministry. Her approach aroused the Christ, who probably had been left alone, when the disciples went into the neighboring community to buy food, because He was worn out. Possibly "John remained with Jesus and over heard the conversation he reported.” The Master’s enthusiasm and energy, revealed in His effort to save the one who had been rejected by the com munity as being unfit for them to associate with, was tempered with discernment and discretion. The Samaritan ministry was not on the Lord's program when He turned from Judea to go to Galilee by the shortest road. He had offered Him self to the religious leaders in Jerusa lem and they had refused to accept Him by trying to stir up strife be tween his disciples and the followers of John the Baptist. It was an inci dental meeting that transformed the social outcast into a missionary of the gospel. Jesus won her heart and aroused her interest when, by His friendly approach. He broke down the barriers of centuries. In seeking a kindness from her, by asking for water, the Master revealed His sym pathy for her. He brought Himself down for the time being to her level, so that He could lift her up and save her soul. Christ took advantage of her amazement at His request by stimu lating her curoslty and then appealed to her conscious human needs in an effort to make this daughter of shame realize her deepest needs by offering her living water. Some have considered that she was "cynical, in sulting, flippant.” Jesus saw in her an open-hearted, sincere soul, whose questions revealed that she could be saved. It was this fact that caused the Master to tell her to call her husband. He decided to make her realize her sinful past, awake through repentance a craving for forgiveness and cleansing, which was the blessing that He longed to impart to her. The marvel is not that He knew the secrets of her life, but that His spirit of sympathy for the salvation of the sinner was free from harshness. The poor souid knew that she had loved too much and was then living in sin with out love, when His words brought her face to face with her past life of sin. Wonderful Revelation. She confessed the facts when she acknowledged that Jesus was a prophet. She was convicted of her sin, but she sought to avoid confess ing it. Men are accustomed to parry the personal thruse by turning the topic from a personal one to reviving old Intellectual debates upon theo logical questions. The Lord refused to be drawn into a controversy that would have stirred up racial and re ligious prejudices and prevented Him from helping her. He answered her questions in solemn and earnest words that proclaimed the charter of religious freedom, which truth Is too little understood and followed today by men in their attitude toward men of other faiths. Her questions—yes, even the con test itself between the Jew and the Samaritans as to Mount Gerizim and Jerusalem—reflected the imperfect and incorrect idea of worship which dominated all the pagan religions and colored even the worship of Je hovah—the idea of locality; the be lief that there is some one place where acts of worship are more ac ceptable to God than at other places. The Master met the bigotry of the woman with a fuller and clearer expression of religious liberty. He made clear for all ages the spiritual fatherhood of God, the spirituality and sincerity of worship which He requires, and consequently the removal of all local limitations to His worship. Spiritual worship will remove the barriers of race and religion that men have erected. When all men recognize the nearness of God and worship Him in spirit and in truth it will mark the dawn of a new age of brotherhood, free from strife and divisions among men. Christ's revelation was more than she could grasp, so she proposed to wait until the Messiah should ap pear to settle the problem for her. To this ignorant social outcast Jesus revealed Himself as the Messiah. Without waiting to confess her faith she hastened to the neighbor ing community and proclaimed that the Messiah had come. Many be lieved upon her word. Others start ed to investigate her statements. She proved her faith by her mission ary endeavors to win others for the Christ. Ten years have passed since the writer rested at Jacob's well and drew water from its depths. Recall ing the impressions of that hour, see ing small children carrying mortar to build a new Greek Catholic Church, one could not but help feeling that Christ would have prohibited child labor upon a building being erected for His glory. He had a place for the children as He had for the Sa maritan woman in His gospel. Many of His followers today would be sur ,■ -- r- . _ v -• ■ ■ - - ;■* • - ' f - ■ J- . ■ -% ; ’ ; ■ v • 5 ■ > ■ . -* ■7T 'j, .. -n, ,■ . \ THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON, D. Q., SATURDAY, AUGUST ’3O. 1924. prised at the Lord's attitude toward personal evangelism and foreign mis sions. His disciples were surprised to find Him talking with the Samari tan. It is easier for some people to consider the heathen at a distance than to take steps to save’those at our doors. The approach of those whom the degraded soul transformed by the grace of God had reached with her story encouraged Christ, as He pointed to them as an evidence that the time of harvest had come. Many of the Samaritans accepted Him, the first fruits of the great ingathering of the Gentiles that has taken place throughout the world, because Jesus taught the message of religious lib erty to (he woman at Jacob’s well and commanded His followers to preach His gospel to every creature.
