Over the years, I’ve wondered about Jesus’s comment to the Samaritan woman about the last drink she would ever need.
Standing at Jacob’s well, in the heat of the day, she didn’t know what he meant either.
Has anyone ever gotten what they would call one last drink from Jesus?
So what was Jesus promising this woman?
He surprised her by knowing that she was on her 6th man (John 4:17-18)—and that since, she wasn’t wearing the ring of this one, she probably hadn’t found her perfect match.
Yet that conversation ended— with a sense of dawning finality.
Could Jesus have been saying something like, “After today, you will always know that Jacob’s well (Israel’s well)—has come to you. And I won’t ever leave you or forsake you.”
