The Ws in John 4

I know it can be cheesy, but I like alliteration in sermon headings – when it’s not forced, and when it does justice to the themes arising out of the passage itself.

English translations of John 4 provide a few suggestive Ws to play with: woman, well, water, worship, work, witness. Here’s a first, provisional go:

1. The water the Christ gives (4:4-18)
2. The worship the Father seeks (4:19-26)
3. The witness the woman bears (4:27-30, 39-42)
4. The work the Son does (4:31-38)
