The Emmaus Road ~ The two disciples are slipping out of Jerusalem, still in doubt and confusion after hearing early reports that the Jesus they know to be dead has been resurrected. Jesus comes to them, offering his presence in the midst of their troubles. Jesus does not force himself on the one-time disciples who no longer recognize their Lord, but remains available, waiting to be invited in.
A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink." ...The Samaritan woman said to him, "How can you, a Jew, ask me, a Samaritan woman, for a drink?" (For Jews use nothing in common with Samaritans.) Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God and who is saying to you, 'Give me a drink,' you would have asked him and he would have given you living water." John 7:8-19 Carl Heinrich Bloch - Woman at the Well ...I love this one!
