This passage is a contrast of 3 views of Jesus during His ministry. The pivotal question of all time was answered by Jesus Himself in Samaria and here again. Once again he offers the Holy Spirit to those that believe in Him. His followers and disciples don’t seem to be sure. The rulers, priests and Pharisees were in the “Never Jesus” camp. The 2nd and 3rd groups seem bound by their own views of the Messiah.
