Five Lessons from Jesus the Evangelist

May 15, 2022 Speaker: John Bell Series: The Gospel of John

Passage: John 4:1–42

The main themes of John 4:1-42 are:

  • God’s covenant mercies extend beyond the nation of Israel.
  • The necessity of the New Birth, through the Holy Spirit, mediated through Jesus.

Five Lessons from Jesus the Evangelist

  1. Jesus evangelized the marginalized of society (1-9). So must we.
  2.  Jesus pressed the point that salvation turns on the Holy Spirit, mediated exclusively through him (10-14). So must we.
  3.  Jesus exposed sin, thus showing the necessity of the new birth (15-18). So must we.
  4.  Jesus pushed the exclusivist claim that the only worship God finds acceptable is “in spirit and truth” (19-24). So must we.
  5.  Jesus had a “ripe harvest” evangelistic outlook -  an outlook that balances God’s sovereignty and human responsibility (35-37). So must we.


This sermon series owes a debt to D.A. Carson’s Commentary, “The Gospel According to John”
