She came with her jar to draw water from the well, accompanied by the weight of her relationship history: 5 husbands and living with one who was not her husband.

She came with her jar and reputation to draw water and met Jesus there.

She returned to the well freed from the weight of her past but she did not return alone. She returned bringing others to the One who said, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again. But whoever drinks the water that I give him will never be thirsty again. But the water that I give him will become in him a spring of water satisfying his thirst for God welling up [continually flowing, bubbling within him] to eternal life” (John 4:13-14, AMP).
