Bible Study Questions for January 23rd, 2021

Saturday at 10:00am EDT

Then said the woman of Samaria unto Him, How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? For the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

— John 4: 8,9 from King James Bible Dictionary

But our Lord did not come to maintain these distinctions of race and caste. It is altogether foreign to the spirit of Christianity for nationalities to be despised. We sometimes hear people say of a person, “Oh, he is only So-and-So!” mentioning some nation that happens to be in the background. Christ was cosmopolitan, He loved men of every nation, and tribe, and tongue, and people. To Him, there was neither Jew nor Samaritan; all such distinctions were banished from His mind.

— “Jesus Sitting on the Well” by Charles Spurgeon

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

— Galatians 3: 28 from King James Bible

The teachings and demonstration of Jesus were for all peoples and for all time; not for a privileged class or a restricted period, but for as many as should believe in him.

— from “Prayer and Healing” in Miscellaneous Writings, by Mary Baker Eddy, page 244: 26-29
