Samaria

In the Gospel of John, Jesus travels back and forth between Jerusalem and Galilee several times. In the story of one trip, we hear that Jesus “had to go through Samaria”–which was enemy territory. But there were well traveled-routes between Judea and Galilee that avoided going through Samaria. So why did Jesus head straight for the place where he and his disciples were outsiders, where they would meet people who did not look or live or worship as they do, people with whom they had a long history of hostility and hurt?

Accompanying Scripture:
Psalm 42:1-3
John 4:1-42
