Here was a woman in an identity crisis culturally, religiously and morally. She was made to feel that her only worth was to attract a man. Jesus shined a bright light on what she had done to lead her to ultimate healing and life giving Water. He set her free, but she had to be exposed first. He did this in the context of her everyday life and used it as a metaphor to change her eternity. This is what Jesus wants to do with our wounds. Recognize the wounds. And then recognize Jesus to transform them.
