Christ – Samaritan Woman at Well 1

Jesus doesn’t judge the Samaritan woman; she’s quite faithful, even though she’s female, belongs to the wrong tribe, has been married five times and now is living with a sixth man. Jesus reveals himself to her despite their huge difference in status; perhaps he is impressed with her honesty. (Carl Bloch)

    • It is indeed, though we didn’t find it our usual way when we Googled; we had to look at Carl Bloch’s Wikipedia entry. The actual painting is vertical; the image above crops out the tree branch over the figures’ heads. (I like it better as Bloch painted it.) Thank you, Jack.
