Jesus replied, “He who drinks this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks the water I give will never thirst again. It will become a fountain within, springing into eternal life.”

Jesus replied, “Believe me, woman, an hour is coming when you’ll neither worship here nor in Jerusalem. You worship ignorantly, we worship knowledgeably, for salvation is from the Jews. Now is the hour when true worshippers, whom the Father seeks, will worship in spirit and truth, for God is Spirit.”
