So now Jesus meets the samaritan woman at a well John 4:7-26

So who was He to her ? He told her all about her relationshps .

Here He is meeting with her as Paul did and told her about thr facts of her life....[word of knowlegde]

So is she now a man or is He a woman ? did she see herself as His Body or a child  or married  to Him.

It is nonsense to apply a metaphor in scripture to all

You cannot be a child and a woman and a man and the Head .

I hope you get it   :D

If not then I will die [but not literally - but only Picturally/metaphorically]

Hi TJ
What on earth does the woman at the well have to do with my question which is are the church and the children one and the same or different groups

It has nothing to do what sex one is or how old we are as St Paul makes plane.

28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus
May be if I use Israel as an example you may understand what I'm rabbiting on about.
As you may know I believe Israel is the first Adam how were they created.
First we have Moses God spoke through him Moses represents God moses brother Aaron was the high priest represents Christ then we have the Levite's which are representative of the church.
Then we have the rest of the tribes of Israel no matter what age or sex they are the children.
So if Christ the last Adam is created the same as the first Adam Israel then it would mean that the church and the children of God are separate groups but all are saved through the blood of Christ.

Hope some of this makes sense to you.

Love and Peace
Dave

'For all have sinned,
and come short of the glory of God;
Being justified freely by His grace
through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Whom God hath set forth
to be a propitiation
through faith in His blood,
to declare His righteousness
 for the remission of sins that are past,
through the forbearance of God;
To declare, I say, at this time His righteousness:
that He might be just,
and the justifier of Him which believeth in Jesus.
(Rom 3:23-26) 

Love and peace
Dave

(Rom 3:23,24)

Hi Dave, (@davetaff)

Having shown in the first chapters of Romans the wrath of God: and that the Gentiles (nations) were without excuse (inexcusable) (Rom.1:20), the law of conscience and the evidence of creation witnessing against them. Also the Jew, with the advantage of having received the light of truth, and the law of God, were also inexcusable. Therefore the whole world has been found to be guilty before God, all equally desearving of His judgment.

How wonderful therefore to hear the words, 'But now',  in verse 21,

'But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested,
being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ
unto all and upon all them that believe: ... '

(Rom 3:21,22a) 

* The law had brought condemnation, for it's spiritual nature had shown the utter impossibility for mankind to attain to righteousness by his own efforts. It was unattainable by him (Gal. 2:21 & Gal. 3:21).  How much he needs to hear the intervention of God's, 'But now'.

* The power of the gospel is now reiterated and expanded.

'For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;
to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith:
as it is written, The just shall live by faith.'

(Rom 1:16,17) 

* In Romans 3:21 we step out of condemnation into acceptance, out of darkness into light, out of the law into gospel freedom, out of fruitless works into fruitful faith.

Praise God!

In Christ Jesus

Hello again,

I am aware that this, 'walk' through the epistle to the Romans, is being walked by an unobservant creature, for I am very aware that I am missing points of importance along the way. I believe, in order to do this epistle justice, it will need to be 'walked' many times over.  Yet, is this not true in our walks through the hills and dales of this land of ours?  On further walks along the same paths we see things that we missed the first time around.

Back soon,
problem with computer.
