Jacob's Well

Resource Toolbox
A place in Samaria where Jesus stopped to rest as He traveled from Judea to Galilee (John 4:6 ). There He met and conversed with a Samaritan woman on the subject of living water. The Old Testament contains no reference to it. It was located near the Samaritan city of Sychar. The well currently shown as the scene of the encounter of Jesus with the Samaritan woman certainly is an ancient well and is generally accepted to be the place referred to in the Gospel. See Jacob ; Sychar .
