Salvation is from the Jews

by | Jul 24, 2020 | Top Teachings, Videos | 0 comments

When Jesus speaks with the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4, He makes in verse 22 a deep observation in His answer to her: “You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews.”

The Savior of the world is a Jew. He was born from the womb of His Jewish mother Mary. He kept and fulfilled the Law in full (Matthew 5:17) and did set us free from the curse of the Law, according to Galatians 3:13-14 “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.” The Holy Spirit will bring forth the fruit of the Spirit, Galatians 5:16-25. Verse 18 says: “…if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.”
