b. The Emptiness of Religion's Tradition
and the Fullness of Life's Living Water
9 The Samaritan woman then said to Him, How is it that You, being a Jew, ask for a drink from me, who am a Samaritan woman? a(For Jews have no dealings with 1Samaritans.)
10 Jesus answered and said to her, If you knew the agift of God and who it is who says to you, Give Me a drink, you would have asked Him, and He would have given you bliving water.
11 The woman said to Him, Sir, You have no bucket, and the well is deep; where then do You get this living water?
12 Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank of it himself, as well as his sons and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said to her, Everyone who 1drinks of this water shall thirst again,
14 But whoever adrinks of the water that I will give him shall bby no means thirst forever; but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water gushing up into 1ceternal life.
