Woman at the well dramatic reading
It has always been well received. The actor who plays the part should not underestimate the amount of preparation time needed to portray the character—it is an emotionally and physically draining role. The length of the monologue requires creative blocking, and lighting effects add to the presentation. I take no credit for this script. I wept as I wrote her. I wept as I read her.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: John 4 - "Woman at the Well"

It has always been well received. The actor who plays the part should not underestimate the amount of preparation time needed to portray the character—it is an emotionally and physically draining role. The length of the monologue requires creative blocking, and lighting effects add to the presentation. I take no credit for this script. I wept as I wrote her. I wept as I read her. I know that God had a very special hand in this script.
It had started out like any other day. The sun come up ordinary-like. Jake got up. Not enough water in here to. You listen to me, woman! You hear me? I deserved it.
Their looks cut deep. Their silences cut deep. There was just enough water in the jar for me to wet a rag or two. Noon came. He was a good man. Older than Methusaleh, but good. But he was a good man. What if my marriage to Levi would have worked out? Not that there was much chance of that either. He was a mean-spirited man. What if I had never married Zadar? What if Jake and I could get married. A son who was brighter and faster and handsomer than any of the sons of those who cut me out.
My son would have my love for people. I expected it double. Why, one tiny brush from her skirt could keep me out of the synagogue for weeks! He needed me! I had the upper hand for a change! He needed me to draw him some water.
Know how ya can be when the upper hand is yours and ya know it? I soon regretted the angry words I spit at him. How can you ask me for a drink? Instead, he told me strange things. Things about living water, and water that makes people never thirst again. He asked about Jake. Could he be the one? Could he be?
What if he was the one? What if. Come and see the man who told me everything I ever did! Could he be the Christ? I threw open the door, and I run smack into Jake! Just hear me out, OK? Jake, I. Why, I musta left it by the well! There was. I know what ya told me, Jake. Yeh, I know ya wanted it right there where it belongs when ya got home. Yeh, and filled to the top! I heard ya, Jake! But ya gotta hear me out!
I met a man there! I met a man who has a special kinda water! The sun had come up ordinary just like any other day. That was the day when I went to the well, and a man named Jesus was there. He told me about something called living water. Come and see! And because of his words many more became believers.

Bible Skit: The Samaritan Woman at the Well
Narrator: 5 So [Jesus] came to a Samaritan city called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. It was about noon. Narrator: His disciples had gone to the city to buy food.
Hymns and songs for 19 April have been added , with a note that many of the hymns throughout the season of Easter will also be appropriate. After the busyness of Easter, perhaps this would be a good time to expand the repertoire! Jane Williams reflection questions have also been added. Consider using the 10 Commandments as part of your preparation for confession today p. The Gospel lends itself to dramatic reading, especially if you used a male voice from the back of the assembly for the words of Jesus.
In his gospel, John records a number of dramatic encounters between individuals and Jesus. As he travelled through Samaria once, Jesus stopped by a well to talk with a woman. The conversation that followed his request for a drink is a master class in how to draw people closer to God and to a living faith of their own. The following idea contains suggestions for exploring this Bible story with a children's group or as part of an all-age service. The storytelling outline in particular will work in many contexts. You can find the story in John We must not underestimate the outrage that Jesus' disciples would have felt when they discovered Jesus not only talking to a Samaritan but also a woman 'of dubious reputation'. Jesus was always reaching out to the ones nobody else came close to. Samaritans and Jews hated each other.
