The woman at the well
It is surprising that Jesus knew everything about her, and she admitted to that; but in spite of all the information offered in John’s Gospel, we come away knowing very little about the woman who came to the well. We know she was a Samaritan. We also know it was midday, noontime and probably hot sitting there next to a well, as Jesus was. It was an old well supposedly dug in the days of Jacob, who gave it to his son Joseph. It was very deep, and the water was refreshing.
