VBS Day 4: Thirsty for Truth


Jesus answered, “…whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:13)

Jesus and the Samaritan Woman (circa 1585) by Paolo Veronese

We don’t know her name or age. But her conversation with the Lord is his longest one-on-one chat recorded in Scripture.

It was noon on a hot day. Jesus was tired from traveling and rested at Jacob’s well outside the town of Sychar, a town in Samaria. There, while waiting for his disciples to go into town for food, he met a woman carrying a clay jar.

Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” (John 4:7)

The rest of the story is presented in this video.
