Jesus meets an unnamed Samaritan woman (Jn 4:7-4:7)

“A Samaritan woman

Came to draw water.

Jesus said to her.

‘Give me a drink.’”

ἔρχεται γυνὴ ἐκ τῆς Σαμαρίας ἀντλῆσαι ὕδωρ. λέγει αὐτῇ ὁ Ἰησοῦς Δός μοι πεῖν.

John uniquely indicated that an unnamed Samaritan woman (γυνὴ ἐκ τῆς Σαμαρίας) came (ἔρχεται) to draw some water (ἀντλῆσαι ὕδωρ) from the well.  However, Jesus spoke to her (λέγει αὐτῇ ὁ Ἰησοῦς).  He wanted some water to drink (Δός μοι πεῖν).  This seemed like a simple request.  Jesus did not have any utensil to drink water with, but he was thirsty from the long trip.  Thus, he asked for a drink of water, as she was about to get some water from the well.  Have you ever drunk water from a well?
