Savior of the world

People from a Samaritan village were the first to recognize Jesus (Yeshua‘) as the Savior of the world. They heard a woman tell about her encounter with Jesus at a well and they decided to find out more. At the time, the Jews marginalized the Samaritans.

Jesus is still willing to reach out to everyone as the Savior of all. Often it is people on the edge of society who are most ready to accept Him for who He is.

The Samaritans were the first to call Jesus the "Savior of the world" in John 4:42. A picture of the Greek text.
