Jesus was tired from a long walk through Samaria . He sat down by Jacob’s well while His disciples went into the town to buy food .
Usually, all the women came
to get water in the morning . Even
though it was late in the day, one
woman came alone to get water . “Give Me a drink,” Jesus said .
The woman asked, “Why are You asking me for a drink?” The woman knew that Jesus was a Jew and that Jews usually did not talk to Samaritans . Jesus told her that if she knew who was speaking to her, she would ask Him for a drink . He told her that He had living water!
