44. Friday, January 2, 28 A.D., Jesus met a woman of Samaritan.

The first half of 28 A.D. of Public Life of Jesus Christ

44. Friday, January 2, 28 A.D., Jesus met a woman of Samaritan.

The Pharisees heard that Jesus Christ had the more disciples than John the Baptist, and His disciples were baptizing.

When Jesus knew that thing, He went back once more to Galilee. At that time, He had to go through Samaria, and He came to a village of Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob gave his son Joseph. (John 4:1-42).

The Jacob’s well had the 2.3 meters width and the 35 meters depth.

Friday, January 2, 28 A.D., the zenith of the sun was at 11:46:13 a.m.

Jesus tired as He had a long journey, so He sat down by the well, and His disciples had gone away into the village to buy food. It was about at the noon. When a woman of Samaritan came to draw water, He said to her.

“Will you give Me a drink?”

The woman of Samaritan said to Him.

“You are a Jew and I am a woman of Samaritan. Why are You asking a drink from me?”

The Jews did not associate with the Samaritans, but He said.

“If you knew the gift of God, and Who asks you for a drink, you would have asked Him, and He would have given you the living water.”

The woman said.

“Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is very deep. Therefore, where can You get the living water? Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us this well, and he drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?”

Jesus replied.

“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirst again. But whoever drinks the living water that I give him will never thirst. The water I give him will become in him a fountain of water which is willing up to the Eternal Life.”

She said.

“Sir, give me this water so that I will not get thirst again, and I will be not coming here to draw water.”

Jesus said to her.

“Go, and call your husband, and come back.”

She answered.

“I have no husband.”

Jesus said to her.

“You are right in saying, ‘I have no husband.’ In fact, you have had five husbands and the man whom you are keeping company with is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”

She said to Him.

“Sir, I understood that You are a prophet. By the way, our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”

He said to her.

“Believe Me. The time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. The Samaritans worship what you do not know, but we worship what we know, for the salvation comes from the Jews. The time is coming, and from now on, the true worshipers have to worship in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such the worshipers. The God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

She said to Him.

“I know that the Messiah is coming. When He comes to us, He will explain everything clearly.”

He said to her.

“I Who spoke to you am He.”

At that time, His disciples returned and surprised at that He was talking about something with a woman. But none asked, “What do You seek?” or, “Why are You talking with her?”

She left her water jar, and she went back to Sychar, and she said to the inhabitants.

“Come and see a Man Who told me everything I have ever done. Can this be the Christ?”

They went out the village and came to Him.

Meanwhile, His disciples offered the foods, and urged Him.

“Rabbi, eat something.”

He said to them.

“I have the food to eat which you know nothing about.”

They said to each other.

“Could someone have brought Him food?”

He said to them.

“My food is to do the Will of Him Who sent Me and finish His work. Do you not say like this? ‘We have the four months before we will have the harvest.’ I tell you that open your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already ripe for harvest! He who reaps receives his reward, and he gathers the fruits for the Eternal Life. So it is true that it is written; ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap which you have not worked for. The others continue their hard works, and you will have your rewords from their labors.”

The Samaritans believed in Him because of the woman’s testimony; “He told me everything I have ever done.”

When they came to Him, they urged Him to stay with them.

The sun set at 4:49 p.m. The moon which phase of the moon was 16.9 rose at 6:35 p.m.

Jesus stayed at Sychar for two days. They were between from on January 2 of 28 A.D., until on January 3, and January 3 was the Sabbath.

Because of His words the inhabitants more believed in Him.

Sunday, January 4, 28 A.D., they said to the woman.

“We no longer believe in Him because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this Man is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.”

Jesus said to the woman of Samaritan.

“The water I give him will become in him a fountain of water which is willing up to the Eternal Life.”

1976 A.D., I learned the basic things of the theologies of the Roman Catholic Church.

April 9, 1977 A.D., I received the baptism at Miyazaki Catholic Church.

I read the various fields’ books. Especially, I was care for the books of Saint John of the Cross, Saint Teresa of Avila, and Saint Augustine of Hippo.

I have ever read the Japanese Editions of The Way of Perfection, and The Interior Castle of Saint Teresa of Avila. When I read The Interior Castle, she wrote in her book like this.

In our souls there are the seven rooms, and the God lives in the depth of the seventh room.

When I read the scene of the woman of Samaritan, I usually linked that Jesus’ Words to the seventh room of the Interior Castle.

Saint John filled out his important theories in his Gospel, and it was necessary for him to tell the truth. There was something mysteries about Saint John. When he was young he made up his mind to be a writer. He was capable of meditating and he was engaged in meditating the Jesus’ Words, and he was equal to his life work. He was knower than any other writers about the dates of the Four Gospels. For example, he did not write the order of the stories at random, and he got through with his work. I can agree with him on the matter. Therefore, he played on important role in maintain the faiths and the theologies of the Roman Catholics, and what he wrote count for much.

See the Chapter 140 of THE POEM OF THE MAN~GOD. 140. In the House of Cleopas, the Head of the Synagogue.

Jesus says: “And My first year of evangelization ends here.”

See the Chapter 148 of THE POEM OF THE MAN~GOD. 148. Jesus Visits Baptist near Ennon.

Miss Maria Valtorta wrote like this.

It is a clear moonlight night, so clear that the ground appears in all its details and the fields, covered with corn which has just come up, look like green-silver plush carpets, on which the country paths seem dark stripes, watched over by the tree trunks that are white on the moonlit side and completely dark on the other. Jesus is walking steadfast and alone.

In short, at 10 p.m., on Sunday, January 5, 28 A.D., Jesus Christ visited John the Baptist near Ennon.

The phases of the moon were very important for decide the months of the stories of The Private and Public Life of Jesus Christ.

The Sabbaths were very important for decide the weeks of the stories of The Private and Public Life of Jesus Christ.
