Grab a pail

Jesus and the woman at the well...

John 4
7When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me a drink?" 8(His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)

11"Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?

Prov 20
 5 The purposes of a man's heart are deep waters,
       but a man of understanding draws them out.

Woman... I've come to draw your water
I have found your well is dry

Draw from Me and be satisfied...

Prov 20
6 Many a man claims to have unfailing love, 
       but a faithful man who can find?

John 4

16He told her, "Go, call your husband and come back."
 17"I have no husband," she replied.
   Jesus said to her, "You are right when you say you have no husband. 18The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true."

You have found not just a prophet - but a faithful, righteous lover judge-King

He now reaps in His harvest:

Prov 20
 4 A sluggard does not plow in season;
       so at harvest time he looks but finds nothing.

Dear Yamsee,

When did Jesus drink the last cup?

Jesus drank from 3 cups during the Last Supper, but the last - the fourth - he did not drink from then.

Matthew 27:48, Mark 15:36, Luke 23:36, and John 19:30 show Jesus drinking vinegar or sour wine on the cross, from a sponge placed on a hyssop branch.

The hyssop branch was symbolic of the sprinkling of the Passover lamb's blood using a hyssop branch - see Exodus 12:22.

So Jesus was truly the Passover Lamb; then he said, "It is finished."
