Jesus and Samaritan Woman



John 4:1-42

After the Pharisees heard that Jesus baptized more disciples than John, Jesus left for Galilee. But to make it to Galilee, Jesus had to go through Samaria.

Samaria was near to the place where Jacob used to live. The well that Jacob dug was there as well.

After Jesus reached Samaria, He sent His disciples away to buy food.

When it was six o’clock, a Samaritan woman came to drew water. Jesus said to the Samaritan woman, “Please let me have some water to drink.”

The Samaritan woman said, “Don’t you know that Samaritans hates the Hebrew people? Why did you ask a drink from me?

Jesus said, “If you know who I am, you would have ask me to give you the water of life which once you drink you will never feel thirsty anymore.”

The Samaritan woman said, “You don’t have anything to fetch water from the well so how can you give me the water of life?”

Jesus said, “Whoever who drinks the water of life that I give him will never feel thirsty and a fountain of life will spring up from within him.”

The Samaritan woman said, “I want this water of life. Please give me so that I may drink of it and never feel thirsty again.”

Jesus said, “Go now and call your husband to come here.”

The Samaritan woman said, “I am not married and so I have no husband.”

Jesus said, “You are not telling the truth. You have five husbands. The one whom you are spending the night with is not your husband.”

The Samaritan woman said, “I see that you are a prophet of God. We Samaritans worshipped our Gods in the mountains but you Hebrews worship in Jerusalem.”

Jesus said, “It will happen one day that you will neither have to worship God in the mountain or in Jerusalem. You worship Gods that you don’t know. The time will come when the true disciples of God will worship the Father in spirit and truth.”

The Samaritan woman said, “I know that the Messiah is coming.”

Jesus said to the Samaritan woman, “I am the Messiah.”

At this moment, Jesus’ disciples had returned from buying food. Jesus’ disciples wondered why Jesus talks to a Samaritan woman.

The Samaritan woman said, “This man prophesies everything that I did before in my life. Could he be the Christ?”

Jesus’ disciples said, “Come, let’s eat some food.”

Jesus replied, “I have food to eat that you don’t know. My food is doing the work my Father had sent me to do. ”

The Samaritan woman went back to her home and told everyone about Jesus.

The Samaritans believed what the Samaritan woman told them and they come to Jesus.

When the Samaritans came to Jesus, He preached to them for two days.
