Here is a popular Bible snack that you can use to teach the lesson of Jesus and the Samarian woman at the well. When Jesus met the Samarian woman, she was surprised that Jesus would even speak to her. He told her that he would give her rivers of living water, implying it was perfectly all right for Jews and Samarians to mix up together.
SCRIPTURE: JOHN 4:13-30

– Bag of Sun Chips
