Jesus, the Seventh Husband

John’s account of the Samaritan woman is the scandal of the cross; that Christ would engage and touch the life of someone who is unclean, and not only that, but also clothe her with His husbandry. The woman at the well has been married to five men; five false husbands. The sixth man is not even a husband (John 4:18), thus constituting another false husband. Yet, the seventh man is a true and perfect husband. He is the true provider; the greater Jacob who provides living water for His bride, and unlike the others, will not abandon nor forsake her.
