The Samaritan Woman
Last Sunday’s gospel reading from the Gospel of John was about the Samaritan woman who met Jesus at the well. The preacher said that the story about the Samaritan woman at the well is about worship in whatever place you may be. The same point is made in Stephen’s Last Sermon. I suspect that neither Matthew nor Mark have included anything remotely related. This issue arose during the Samaritan controversy but was a mute point in the later half of the 1st century.
This is a work in progress.
