Jacob’s Well holds a kind of sacred aura around it. And what’s really important is that this is the most authentic Bible site associated with Jesus anywhere in the Holy Land. It’s about 1 ½ hours north of Jerusalem in the area that was called Samaria in Bible times. Here on one of the main streets of the town of Nablus is the 4th century Greek Orthodox Church, St Photini that was built over the site of Jacob’s Well during the Byzantine period. It’s a truly beautiful church surrounded by gardens, and to get to Jacob’s well, we go down into the crypt of the church. We are now standing beside the same well where Jesus met the woman of Samaria.
