The Character of Jesus Christ

I have been leading a study of John’s Gospel at church.  Something interesting occurred to me yesterday as we went through the fourth chapter.

Nicodemus, who is described as a Jewish ruler, comes to see Jesus.  The gentile official, who hopes for his son to be healed, comes to see Jesus.

The woman at the well, the one who is a sinner with five former husbands and a live-in boyfriend, gets a different treatment.

Jesus comes to see her.
