Christian Art: The Woman at the Well

Woman-at-the-well-christian-art“Jesus knows the depth of despair and sadness of a woman who has had 5 husbands. He doesn’t judge her or condemn her, nor does he condescend or give her moral lessons. Instead, he holds out his cup and allows her to serve him water. This is an act of love that says “you’re ok and I would like to be in relationship with you.” This is where this love story is totally different from any this woman has experienced before: Jesus isn’t going to abandon her as perhaps her five previous husbands have done. He is offering her a different, deeper kind of love – one which accepts her as she is and which will free her from the despair of her life thus far.” Source
