19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”
21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know--;-- we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”
26 Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.”
The Disciples Rejoin Jesus
27 Just then his disciples returned and were surprised to find him talking with a woman. But no one asked, “What do you want?”´-or-“Why are you talking with her?”
28 Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?” 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him.”
Accordingly the dialogue between Christ Jesus and a Samaritan woman “in a town in Samaria called Sychar” is demonstrating the holiness of the Son of God as the Source of the Religion and the decline of the sectarian dogma consisting in the invention of the “holy land” which has been dealt a sharp blow.
Then the conversion with the woman in this place is significant since it testifying about the foundation of the Religion through the Son of God: Christ Jesus therefore when the Samaritan woman saw in Him a Prophet He replied to her as the Son of God who is building the dwelling of the Holy Spirit through His Word to depict His Father who sent Him from the Heavenly Kingdom to the earth to be “the Word who became Flesh”.
Furthermore with the Word of God: Christ Jesus, the dividing line is drawn between the blurred doctrine of a “holy land” and the clear foundation of the Holy Spirit since the troubled dogma is always the cause of crimes: the area of the sects thus because of these sectarian canons, peoples in the history and up to now are massacred and driven out of their homes given that the institution of this dogma is conducting to the discrimination between the habitants of a territory and the residents of an other territory then the Samaritan woman was surprised when Christ Jesus who “was born in Bethlehem in Judea” asked her the Samaritan for a “drink” “(For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)”
So woman’s attitude argue the hideous tradition of belittlement of peoples due to their ethnical origins constituting a crime which always falls within the framework of sects and one crime often leads to other crimes since the invention of the superiority of a land is the cause of a multitude of invasions and the invasions are still causing the scourges of murders and the thorns of human trafficking.
Hence a glance a little further back in history demonstrate the gloomy way taken by the adepts of the sectarian dogma of a holy land which gave rise to racism and interminable bloody conflicts which have received canonical approval so the lukewarm reactions of the international community in response to wars and terrorism is testifying about the sectarian nature of this fallen world.
On the contrary, Christ Jesus is building the Religion on the basis of the Human, consequently He translate His fondness for the primacy of the Human nature beholding to God the Father: the Creator accordingly He is destroying, through His Word, the felony coming from the belittlement of the Human in the favour of lands´-or-ethnical origin since faith in the Human is the Source of the respect of Human Rights established solely by Christ Jesus conceived through the Human: the Virgin Mary and the Divine: the Holy Spirit hence its dual nature : Human and Divine.
It might therefore be argued that the heralded support of gloomy buildings, where sectarian traditions are observed, to the Human Rights has not achieved tangible results, on the contrary doomed places such as mosques and churches are nests of crimes and the theological dimension in their sectarian practices is only a kind of cover that seeks to conceal their grave felonies such as genocide, smuggling and other crimes against humanity.
Since not believing in the Human who comes from the Divine is transforming people into animals to be slaughtered in one way´-or-another in order to steal their properties since the ultimate goal of sects is expropriation which goes through the stage of the reification of the Human in order to enslave him and make even his corpse a means that leads to the said expropriation.
Thusly the treaties and conventions called treaties and conventions of human rights are in fact invented to cover the violation of human rights which puts everyone in a mediocre narrative covered by a cover of slogans and flags hence the negotiations between ghosts states were locked in an impasse.
Therefore Christ Jesus as the sole founder of the Religion taught the Samaritan woman the prevailing worshiping of God the Father “in spirit and truth” regardless the place´-or-the ethnical origin´-or-the sex of the interlocutor so ,even at that time the dialogue between a Man and a woman was unusual hence the astonishment of his apostles, Christ Jesus is breaking the habits and customs to establish the Religion coming from the Divine and the Human and --dir--ected to the Human who aspires to embrace the Divinity through the renouncement to worldly interests for the labours of the Heavenly Kingdom.
And according to His Holy Double Nature: Divine and Human Christ Jesus initiated a discussion with the Samaritan Woman as a Human able to see God: Christ Jesus, despite of her sins committed in the past, through “the living water” of the Faith: “whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
And the water of faith gushes forth in the heart which is the Dwelling of the Holy Spirit built by Christ Jesus, so according to this purifying water: the Word of God, the Samaritan woman acquired the purity of heart permitting to her to see God: Christ Jesus hence 25” The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”
