We do not know her name. We can only guess her age. But she probably had the longest one-on-one conversation with Jesus recorded in the Bible. It happened at high noon on a hot day. Jesus met her at a rest-stop where he waited while his disciples went into town to get some food. So far so good. Until the exchange began. Have you ever had an occasion to meet someone in a position of power, maybe the president of a corporation, or an official in government? Chances are you might exchange a few pleasantries. Likely you would not challenge that person in a first encounter. Not this woman. She challenged Jesus. In turn, Jesus challenged her. What was the big deal? That’s what we’ll talk about as we continue our series in Encounters with Jesus.
