:B:1 The Lord knew that the Pharisees were informed about him
5 He came to a Samaritan town called Sychar, near the land that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6 Jacobs well is there. Tired from his journey, Jesus sat down by the well
9 The Samaritan woman said to him, How is it that you, a Jew, ask me, a Samaritan and a woman, for a drink? (For Jews, in fact, have no dealings with Sama ritans.) 10 Jesus replied, If you only knew the Gift of God! If you knew who it is that asks you for a drink, you yourself would have asked me and I would have given you living water.
11 The woman answered, Sir, you have no bucket and this well is deep
13 Jesus said to her, Those who drink of this water will be thirsty again
15 The woman said to him, Give me this water, that I may never be thirsty and never have to come here to draw water. 16 Jesus said, Go, call your husband and come back here. 17 The woman answered, I have no husband. And Jesus re plied, You are right to say: I have no husband
19 The woman then said to him, I see you are a prophet
21 Jesus said to her, Believe me, woman, the hour is coming when you shall worship the Father, but that will not be on this mountain or in Jeru salem. 22 You Samaritans worship with out knowledge, while we Jews worship with knowledge, for salvation comes from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming and is even now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth
25 The woman said to him, I know that the Messiah, that is the Christ, is coming
27 At this point the disciples re turned and were sur prised that Jesus was speaking with a woman
31 In the meantime the disciples urged Jesus, Master, eat. 32 But he said to them, I have food to eat that you dont know about. 33 And the disciples wondered, Has anyone brought him food? 34 Jesus said to them, My food is to do the will of the One who sent me and to carry out his work.
35 You say that in four more months it will be the harvest
37 Indeed the saying holds true: One sows and an other reaps. 38 I sent you to reap where you didnt work or suffer
39 In that town many Samaritans believed in him when they heard the woman who declared, He told me everything I did. 40 So, when they came to him, they asked him to stay with them and Jesus stayed there two days. 41 After that many more believed because of his own words 42 and they said to the woman, We no longer believe because of what you told us
43 When the two days were over, Jesus left for Galilee. 44 Jesus himself said that no prophet is recognized in his own country. 45 Yet the Galileans welcomed him when he arrived, because of all the things he had done in Jerusalem during the Festival and which they had seen. For they, too, had gone to the feast.
Jesus cures the son of an official
:B:46 Jesus went back to Cana of Galilee where he had changed the water into wine. At Ca per naum there was an official whose son was ill, 47 and when he heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went and asked him to come and heal his son, for he was at the point of death.
48 Jesus said, Unless you see signs and won ders, you will not believe! 49 The official said, Sir, come down before my child dies. 50 And Jesus replied, Go, your son is living.
50 The man had faith in the word that Jesus spoke to him and went his way. 51 He was already going down the hilly road when his servants met him with this news, Your son has recovered! 52 So he asked them at what hour the child had begun to recover and they said to him, The fever left him yesterday in the afternoon about one oclock. 53 And the father realized that it was the time when Jesus told him, Your son is living. And he became a be liever, he and all his family.
54 Jesus performed this second miraculous sign when he returned from Judea to Galilee.
