The text for this episode is John 4:3-42, Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well. This passage reveals so much to us, especially about worship, and what it actually looks likes and means to worship God in "the spirit and in truth," and why this has nothing to do with a worship service and everything to do with what we do outside of a worship service.

Beginning with the creation of the first Eve through the first Adam account in Genesis 2:21-25 and then presenting the correlating passages in the New Testament with the last Adam, the evidence appears to be irrefutable that the Church, Christ’s bride, is also the last Eve. What happens, though, when one half (men) of the church does not recognize or believe this is that the other half (women) of the church, by default will be regarded, and even treated, as though they have less kingdom value and worth.

This first broadcast of "Pleading the Case" begins by posing the question: Is it possible to have the right Jesus for salvation and yet the wrong Jesus for living it out? If you have never considered this as a possibility, then the answer might surprise you, especially for what it reveals to us about our present condition as the Church, Christ’s bride?
