John 4:5 In-Context

3 So Jesus left the Judean countryside and went back to Galilee.
4 To get there, he had to pass through Samaria.
5 He came into Sychar, a Samaritan village that bordered the field Jacob had given his son Joseph.
6 Jacob's well was still there. Jesus, worn out by the trip, sat down at the well. It was noon.
7 A woman, a Samaritan, came to draw water. Jesus said, "Would you give me a drink of water?"
