Sunday School Lesson “Jesus and the Woman at the Well” from John 4:5-42
The Woman at the Well A story about the woman of Samaria. Text Version Afrikaans. I really want to win, and, besides, we have a great church and I know you'll like my teacher! Let's hurry! As the class began and Miss Kendal, the math teacher, started her lesson, Greg looked around the room to see if he had missed inviting anyone to his church. Greg's thoughts trailed off as the classroom door opened and Rose silently entered the classroom. When you think of a rose, you think of something soft, beautiful and with a wonder smell.
But Rose, the girl, was just the opposite. No one ever talked to Rose. Her hair was always a tangled mess, her face and clothes were always dirty, and she always smelled horrible! As Greg tried to turn his attention back to his studies, the lesson his Sunday school teacher, Miss Davis, taught just a few days ago began to haunt him. The lesson had been from John It was the lesson about the woman at Jacob's Well.
I'm going to tell you a story called the Woman at the Well. Now Samaria was a place that the Jews didn't like. Normally, the Jewish people would travel far out of their way just to avoid touching their foot on the soil of Samaria.
Samaria was unclean — it was dirty! Since Miss Davis had captured all the students' attention, she proceeded with the story a little slower.
The time was the 'sixth hour' or around noon, the hottest part of the day. Needing something to eat, Jesus sent his disciples to find some food. Now before we go any further," Miss Davis interrupted her story, "let me tell you about this woman. The day was cooler and, besides, all the other women were there and they had a good chance to visit and talk to one another. The only women who didn't go in the morning, were the women that were considered sinful or dirty.
Because of her sinful life, she wasn't allowed to get water when all the other women came to the well. She had to wait until no one else was around. Miss Davis had watched each child nod his head in agreement that this woman was a sinful and dirty woman. Then she began again. The woman was shocked! She actually asked Jesus why he had even talked to her. Jesus instead spoke kindly to her in a riddle.
He said, 'Woman, if you knew to whom you were talking, the gift of God, you would ask me to give you to drink and I would have given you Living Water. Jesus had just asked her to give him a drink, and now he said he could give her water. She arrogantly replied that the well was deep and Jesus had no way of drawing out water to give her. She then stated, 'Are you greater than Jacob who gave us this well? But the water that I shall give will cause you to never thirst again. It will be a well of water springing up into everlasting life!
But Jesus replied that first she should go bring her husband to meet him. Sadly the woman answered that she had no husband. Jesus, knowing all, replied that she had answered him correctly because she had had 5 husbands, and the man she was living with was not her husband.
She was wicked and dirty! Everyone hated her! Miss Davis then began to speak softly to her class. But Jesus did not come to the world to condemn sinners, but to call them to righteousness. She told them that this was the Christ! Because of his kindness, Jesus stayed, and by his words and the woman's testimony, the Bible says that many received Jesus as their Savior. After the woman had left to go into the town, the disciples came closer to Jesus and offered him the meat they had bought.
He felt full because he had done the wonderful will of God. Finally Jesus spoke to his disciples and told them that the time to win souls to the Lord was short and they needed to work hard. Sometimes they would win someone to the Lord and sometimes someone else later would lead them to the Lord, but the goal was to witness to everyone. The story Miss Davis had taught the Sunday before, continued to haunt Greg the rest of the morning. At lunchtime that day, Greg picked up his tray of food and headed to the table with his friends.
The normally good-tasting food, burned in Greg's stomach. After just three bites, he put his fork down and looked across the lunchroom to where Rose was sitting all alone. Slowly, with a feeling of dread, Greg took his tray and walked to the table at the other end of the lunchroom and sat down across from Rose. I'd love to," Rose replied sheepishly. For the rest of the lunchtime, Greg and Rose sat and talked about Sunday school.
That Sunday, Rose went to church for the first time in her life and even prayed for Jesus to come into her soul. Just a week later, Rose and her family moved away and Greg never saw her again. Whatever happened to Rose, Greg will never know.
But one thing Greg does know is that God was pleased that he went and invited the dirty, messy and smelly girl to go to Sunday school with him. And even though other kids in his class teased him for a long time about Rose, Greg was proud that he had followed Jesus' example when he met the Woman at the Well.
What was the name of the place that the Jews did not like to go near? Why do you suppose Jesus stopped at the well? Where did Jesus' disciples go? Why did the woman come to the well? What did Jesus ask the woman to do? Where did Jesus send the woman after she begged for His water? How many husbands did she have? What did the woman do when she went back into the city? Can you think of someone you could tell about Jesus? There are many hurting people who need to know about Jesus.

Lesson: Jesus and the Samaritan Woman
This Bible lesson for children is based on John , the story of the Samaritan Woman talking to Jesus. Please leave any suggestions at the bottom of this page. Before reading the story, divide the children into two groups and ask one group to identify what they learn about the Samaritan woman. Ask the other half of the children to identify the reaction of the disciples and the town people to Jesus encounter with the woman. Read and Recap John
Just before He ascended to heaven, Jesus told his disciples, Go and make disciples of all nations. We know that this is a command for all Christians in each successive generation. Yet I think most of us feel guilty because we hardly ever tell anyone about the greatest gift in the world salvation through Jesus Christ.
