You Don’t Even Have A Bucket, Jesus

“You ain’t got a bucket”. –The Samaritan woman in John 4

We can’t blame her for not understanding Jesus. After all, she doesn’t know him from any other Jew that’s rejected her. And everything he is saying and doing on this encounter was probably screaming “crazy person I should slowly inch away from” and not “prophet of God”.

Her comment on Jesus’ lack of a bucket comes on the heels of him saying, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” That’s Jesus’ way of saying, “I have everything you need”.

A perfect set-up for her response. “Man, you don’t even have a bucket!”
