One of my favorite chapters in the Bible is John 4, in which Jesus meets the Samaritan woman at the well (“and he told me all things that ever I did!”) and tells her of the living water she can get from Him. This song is about that incident.
Requested by Erlene, Living Water by Carroll Roberson from his new album, Unchanging Love.
(“From the President,” Faith For All of Life, March 31, 2018: by Mark Rushdoony)
In Jesus, the Deepening River and the Blinding Light, Mark Rushdoony follows Our Lord to Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles in John Chapters 7 and 8, and ties Jesus’ words and actions to prophecies by Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Zechariah. Really, there was no excuse for misunderstanding His claim to be the Christ.
I found this an illuminating essay, even as I helped edit it. There are Christians who don’t pay much attention to the Old Testament; but in so doing, they miss much of the meaning of the New Testament.
