Who are your townspeople?

Who are your townspeople?  John 4.1-42

We left her standing there, water jar still empty against one hip atop the stone well, fully aware that the One to whom she is speaking, knows all about her.  He knows she has had ‘five husbands, and the man she now has is not her husband’,…

What do YOU notice about this exchange?
