‘I have no husband.’
Jesus said to her.
‘You are right
‘I have no husband.’”
ἀπεκρίθη ἡ γυνὴ καὶ εἶπεν Οὐκ ἔχω ἄνδρα. λέγει αὐτῇ ὁ Ἰησοῦς Καλῶς εἶπες ὅτι Ἄνδρα οὐκ ἔχω
John uniquely indicated that this unnamed Samaritan woman answered (ἀπεκρίθη ἡ γυνὴ) Jesus. She said (καὶ εἶπεν) that she did not have a husband (Οὐκ ἔχω ἄνδρα.). Jesus reminded her (λέγει αὐτῇ ὁ Ἰησοῦς) that she had spoken correctly in saying (Καλῶς εἶπες) that she did not have a husband (ὅτι Ἄνδρα οὐκ ἔχω). Once again, this conversation seemed straight forward and uncomplicated. She did not have a husband. Jesus had accepted her answer. Is it important that women have a husband?
