21 Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, believe me, the
hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this
mountain nor in Jerusalem.
22 You worship
what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is
from the Jews.
23 But the hour
is coming, and is now here, when the true worshippers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such as these
to worship him.
24 God is spirit,
and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.’
25 The woman said
to him, ‘I know that Messiah is coming’ (who is called
Christ). ‘When he comes, he will proclaim all things to us.’
26 Jesus said
to her, ‘I am he, the one who is speaking to you.’
