In this scene, John shows Jesus interacting with two people who are very different from each other and yet there are similarities which allow us to see the skill with which John puts these images together. In the first instance, Jesus crosses over all kinds of cultural barriers to speak with a desperate Samaritan woman who believes wholeheartedly without a physical sign and brings her whole community to believe along with her. In the second, Jesus is met by a desperate 'royal official' from his home region who cries out for healing for his dying son. Jesus heals his son 'from a distance' and in response to this, the official and his whole family believe. Through all of these scenes, John continues to build our confidence in believing Jesus!
