Jesus and the Samaritan Woman
Jan 10, 2021

Our Bible Reading of the Day is John 4:1-42. Wearied by His journey from Judea to    Galilee, Jesus sits down beside Jacob’s well outside Sychar, a town in Samaria, at about the sixth hour (noon). A Samaritan woman comes to draw water from the well, a chore usually done in the early morning or evening, when it is cooler. She, however, comes during the hottest part of the day, perhaps shunned by the other women on account of her immoral lifestyle. Jews regarded Samaritans, especially Samaritan women, as perpetually impure. Rather than shunning her, however, Jesus asks her for a drink and, in turn, gives her living water. Her spiritual thirst exceeds Jesus’ physical thirst. The Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, is the gift of God to those who believe in Jesus, the One who quenches mankind’s thirst for eternal life.
