Power, status, and being human

Power, status, and being human

‘The story of Jesus and the woman of Samaria provides a rich source of reflection – on evangelism, gender, ethnicity, worship, and more besides – but the implications of the first few verses are often overlooked.   So far as we know, these two were on their own.  The disciples were off looking for lunch.  The woman was making a solitary trip to the well at noon.  Between them lay the cultural barriers of status that would normally rule out any kind of genuine communication.’
