After review various approaches and possible interpretations of John 4:4‐42 (i.e., christological, pneumatological, sacramental, liturgical, and feminist), the essay presents a missiological reading of John 4:4‐42. It shows how the text answers questions about the origin, purpose, contents, and fruits of the church’s mission. Finally, it argues that Jesus’ and the Samaritan woman’s mutual interactions represent a possible paradigm for interreligious dialogue which is an essential part of Christian mission.
