10 Answers To Questions About Jesus
Q: What was significant about Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well?
A: This was a definite act of social misconduct for Jesus – a Jew – to speak to a Samaritan woman and ask something from her. The physical need for water was the way in which Jesus illustrated her spiritual need for renewal and transformation. So much so, after their conversation the woman leaves behind her water jar symbolizing this shift in perspective.
