We have been looking at the idea that Vacation Bible School has just as much to teach us adults as it does the children who attend. You can read the first posts How Great Is My Faith?, The Result of Great Forgiveness, and A Spiritual Rebirth by clicking on the highlighted links.
Today we will be looking at the story of the Samaritan woman at the well from John Chapter 4.
If you are familiar with this story, you know that Jesus, weary from his journey, stops to sit and rest at Jacob’s well in a city of Samaria. He asks a Samarian woman to give him a drink of water. On the surface, none of this is intriguing, but the woman is shocked that He is even speaking to her because Jews and Samaritans didn’t get along well at all, to say the least.
