The Beginning – The Well Series – Part 3
In John 4, we have
a well with history;
a woman with history;
and Jesus… with history.
As we talked about in part one of this series, Jacob's well was a melting pot of circumstances and history. It was a place of joy and pain; divinity and idolatry; holiness and humanity. Jacob’s well is central to Jewish, Samaritan, Christian, and Muslim traditions alike. It’s not just a well; it’s a symbol of everything that had happened around it. All of it – mess, joy, scared, depraved, holy, chaos… it all happened at Jacob's well (the stories it could tell would burn my grandmother's ears *wink*).
