Jesus Talks to a Woman in Samaria (continued)
27At that time Jesus' followers came back from town. They were surprised because
they saw Jesus talking with a woman. But none of them asked, "What do you want?"
or "Why are you talking with her?" 28Then the woman left her water jar and went
back to town. She told the people in town, 29"A man told me everything I have ever
done. Come see him. Maybe he is the Christ.* " 30So the people left the town and
went to see Jesus. 31While the woman was in town, Jesus' followers were begging
him, "Teacher, eat something!" 32But Jesus answered, "I have food to eat that you
know nothing about." 33So the followers asked themselves, "Did somebody already
bring Jesus some food?" 34Jesus said, "My food is to do what the One (God) who sent
me wants me to do. My food is to finish the work that he gave me to do. 35[When
you plant] you always say, 'Four more months to wait before we gather the grain.'
But I tell you, open your eyes. Look at the [people. They are like] fields ready
for harvesting now. 36Even now, the person that harvests the crop is being paid.
He is gathering crops for eternal life. So now the person that plants can be happy
together with the person that harvests. 37It is true when we say, 'One person plants,
but another person harvests the crop.' 38I sent you to harvest a crop that you did
not work for. Other people did the work, and you get the profit from their work."
39Many of the Samaritan* people in that town believed in Jesus. They believed because
of what the woman had told them about Jesus. She had told them, "He (Jesus) told
me everything I have ever done." 40The Samaritans went to Jesus. They begged Jesus
to stay with them. So Jesus stayed there two days. 41Many more people believed because
of the things Jesus said. 42The people said to the woman, "First we believed in
Jesus because of what you told us. But now we believe because we heard him ourselves.
We know now that he really is the one that will save the world."
Jesus Heals an Official's Son
(Mt. 8:5-13; Lk. 7:1-10)
43Two days later Jesus left and went to Galilee. 44(Jesus had said before that a
prophet* is not respected in his own country.) 45When Jesus arrived in Galilee,
the people there welcomed him. These people had seen all the things Jesus did at
the [Passover]* festival in Jerusalem. These people had been at the festival too.
46Jesus went to visit Cana in Galilee again. Cana is where Jesus had changed the
water into wine. One of the king's important officials lived in the city of Capernaum.
This man's son was sick. 47The man heard that Jesus had come from Judea and was
now in Galilee. So the man went to Jesus [in Cana]. He begged Jesus to come to Capernaum
and heal his son. His son was almost dead. 48Jesus said to him, "You people must
see miracles* and wonderful works before you will believe in me." 49The king's
official said, "Sir, come [to my house] before my little son dies." 50Jesus answered,
"Go. Your son will live." The man believed what Jesus told him and went home. 51On
the way home the man's servants came and met him. They told him, "Your son is well."
52The man asked, "What time did my son begin to get well?" The servants answered,
"It was about one o'clock yesterday when the fever left him." 53The father knew
that one o'clock was the same time that Jesus had said, "Your son will live." So
the man and all the people in his home believed in Jesus. 54That was the second
miracle* that Jesus did after coming from Judea to Galilee.
