[Jesus] came to a town of Samaria called Sychar... Jacob's well was there; so Jesus, wearied as He was from His journey, was sitting beside the well. It was about the sixth hour. A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."... [But she] said to Him, "How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?" (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, "Give me a drink," you would have asked Him, and He would have given you the living water.-" John 4:5-10
- What kind of statement was Jesus making by choosing to announce Himself to an outcast who was both a Samaritan and a woman?
- How was Jesus different than every other person she'd come across? How was she expecting to be treated by Him?
She expected to be treated with silence or talked with harsh words. She expected for Jesus to stay away from her.
- After she realized Jesus was the Messiah, she spread the word. How can you do the same?
