I have been leading a study of John’s Gospel at church. Something interesting occurred to me yesterday as we went through the fourth chapter.
Nicodemus, who is described as a Jewish ruler, comes to see Jesus. The gentile official, who hopes for his son to be healed, comes to see Jesus.
The woman at the well, the one who is a sinner with five former husbands and a live-in boyfriend, gets a different treatment.
Jesus comes to see her.
