The Samaritan Woman

Jesus and his disciples walked from Judea towards Galilee through Samaria. Jesus sat down by a well and when a lady came along to the well to get water Jesus asked her for a drink.

She was shocked Jesus had spoken to her because Jewish men didn’t talk to Samaritan women.

Jesus told her he could give her living water. She thought Jesus was talking about a well that would never run out. But Jesus was talking about giving this woman a new life.

Jesus asked her to go and get her husband, but the lady said to Him “I don’t have a husband”. Jesus knew she didn’t have a husband and said to her “That’s right, you’ve had 5 husbands and the man you live with now is not your husband.” The lady was amazed and thought that Jesus was a prophet because He knew all about her but she’d never met Him before.

The lady said to Jesus “I know that the Messiah is coming” Jesus said to her “I am He”

The lady believed and went and told everyone in the village about meeting Jesus. Many of those Samaritans came from the town to see and meet Jesus for themselves.
