Christ's conference with Nicodemus.
A. D. 30. But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, J. 2. 1 Sam.16. because he knew all men, and needed not that 24, 25 7. 1 Chr. 28. 9. any should testify of man: for he knew what Acts 1. 24. Rev. 2. 23. was in man.

22. The baptism, witness, and doctrine of John.
AFTER these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judæa; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
And John also was baptizing in Ænon near to Salim, because there was much water there: - 1 Sam. 9. 24 and they came, and were baptized. For John 4was not yet cast into prison.
Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying. 26 And they came unto John, and said unto him,

And he must needs go through Samaria. 4, 5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is
called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that b Gen. 33. 6 Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacob's 19. & 48. well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied 24. 32. with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it 7 was about the sixth hour. There cometh a
woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith 8 unto her, “Give me to drink." (For his disci
