d. A Living Testimony with a Marvelous Harvest
27 And at this point His disciples came, and they marveled that He was speaking with a woman; yet no one said, What are You seeking? or, Why are You speaking with her?
28 Then the woman 1left her waterpot and went away into the city, and said to the people,
29 Come, see a man who told me all that I have done. 1aIs this not the Christ?
30 They went out of the city and came to Him.
31 In the meantime, the disciples urged Him, saying, Rabbi, eat.
32 But He said to them, 1I have food to eat that you do not know about.
33 The disciples therefore said to one another, Has anyone brought Him anything to eat?
34 Jesus said to them, My food is ato do the will of Him who sent Me and bto finish His work.
35 Do you not say that there are yet four months and then the aharvest comes? Behold, I tell you, Lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they are already white for harvest.
36 He who reaps receives wages and gathers fruit 1unto 2eternal life, in order that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.
37 For in this the saying is true, One sows and another reaps.
38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; 1others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.
39 And many of the Samaritans from that city believed into Him because of the word of the woman who testified, He told me all that I have done.
40 So when the Samaritans came to Him, they asked Him to remain with them, and He remained there two days.
41 And many more believed because of His word.
42 And they said to the woman, It is no longer because of your speaking that we believe, for we ourselves have heard and know that this One is truly the aSavior of the world.
