A Teachable Moment

When Jesus encounters a woman at Jacob’s well while traveling through Samaria, the meeting becomes an excellent model of a student and teacher engaged in the learning process. “The woman tells Jesus what she sees and what she knows,” says Jane Patterson in her commentary on the scripture reading, “and she is open to having her view expanded.”

This story can expand our own views if we pay attention to it. Find the material here for Session II on “living water” as part of “Remaining in Christ: The ‘I am’ sayings of Jesus in the Gospel of John.”
