"Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?"
They came out of the town and made their way toward him.
I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor."
So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days.
