Samaria Finds

Samaria finds, like pottery, coins, and glass help remind us of the lessons learned from Jesus’ ministry. Samaria was a region in the time of the Bible that was outcasted from the rest of Israel.  In John 4 Jesus is traveling through Samaria when he stops at a well for a drink of water. Here Jesus meets with the Samaritan woman, who has been ostracized from her community. Normally, women would go in the morning to collect their water for the day. But the Samaritan women waits until the heat of the day to fetch her water in order to avoid the gossiping women. It is in this time of loneliness that Jesus takes the time to talk with the woman and imparts to her true life. The woman leaves behind her water jug in order to share her faith with her village. Pottery jugs like the water jug the woman used to draw water from the well has been discovered and is available in Zak’s shop. This jug, and the other artifacts found here, serves as a good reminder to us that Jesus is for everyone, even those cast out from society.
