Four times in the Old Testament we see a man sit by a well and God brings him his wife. Isaac & Rebekah in Genesis 24:16, Jacob & Rachel in Genesis 29:10, and Moses & Zipporah in Exodus 2:15-21. In John 4:1-42 we see a man sitting by the well – Jesus- and a unnamed Samaritan woman. She was a half-Jew outcast, shunned by even her own people, and a social reject with a scandalous past. But despite it all Jesus had traveled into Samaria for this divine appointment. But the marriage He was arranging was preparation for the Bride of Christ, the Church. His mission and purpose there, to speak eternal words…words of life & living water to that lost woman. This encounter so important in the fact, that it was the first time Jesus declared to anyone that He was the Messiah.
