4.9 His disciples, on returning, marveled at his talking with the woman, but didnt ask why, or what he wanted. Leaving her water-pot, the woman returned to town to tell the people, “Come see a man who told me everything I did. Could this be the Christ?” So they came out of town to him.

Feb 10 Meanwhile the disciples urged Jesus to eat. But he said, “I have food you know nothing about.” While still asking themselves if someone had brought him food, he said, “My food is to do the will of, and finish the work of Him who sent me. Dont say it is yet four months before harvest.1 I say, open your eyes and see that the fields are ready for harvest. Already, he who reaps receives wages and gathers fruit into eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together, confirming the saying that one sows, and another reaps. I sent you to reap that for which you didnt work. Others did the work, and you benefit from of their labor.”

Feb 11 Many Samaritans2 believed in him because of the womans testimony, “He told me everything I did.” The Samaritans urged him to stay with them. He stayed two days, and many more believed because of his word. This they told the woman, “We believe, not because of your report. Now weve heard him and do know he is truly this worlds Savior.” After the two days, Jesus left for Galilee.
