The Woman at the Well — Extraordinary Encounters with Jesus


John 4 is a remarkable account. In the previous chapter, Jesus engages the religious professional Nicodemus (John 3:1–15). But in chapter 4, Jesus talks with a woman at the opposite end of that spectrum—a religious, social, and moral outsider. Strikingly, the friend of sinners crosses the established social boundaries in order to show Himself to be the Savior of the world.
