    JST, John 4

    JST, John 4:1–4. Compare John 4:1–2

    The Pharisees desire to kill Jesus. He performs some baptisms, but His disciples perform more.

    1 When therefore the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,

    2 They sought more diligently some means that they might put him to death; for many received John as a prophet, but they believed not on Jesus.

    3 Now the Lord knew this, though he himself baptized not so many as his disciples;

    4 For he suffered them for an example, preferring one another.

    JST, John 4:26. Compare John 4:24

    God promises His Spirit to true believers.

    26 For unto such hath God promised his Spirit. And they who worship him, must worship in spirit and in truth.
