Project Description

Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman provides a stark contrast to His conversation with Nicodemus in John 3.  Nicodemus was wealthy, educated, religious, prestigious, and moral.  The Samaritan woman was poor, uneducated, an outcast, and immoral; yet she — not Nicodemus — receives what Jesus is offering and leads many others to Christ.  Why is that, and why does John place these two accounts back-to-back?
