"But the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life." -John 4:14
It was at Jacob’s well, in the presence of a Samaritan woman, that Jesus chose to declare his Messiahship in one of the most tender and profound teaching moments in the New Testament. He could have delivered his message to a large multitude of learned and favored individuals, yet He took time to meet quietly with this woman, who was very much in need of the sweet forgiveness and hope that only one like unto God could have offered her. We do not know the duration of their discussion, but we can imagine that as light and comfort filled the woman’s heart, there was a well of water springing up within her unto everlasting life.
