The Evangeliad (21:31-33)

Section 21:31-33 (corresponding to John 4:27-29): 

Just as he said this, the disciples returned,
And wondered how Christ could speak unto her.
Yet no one protested or made a remark,
Even as they pondered all this in their hearts.

The woman was shaken by what she'd just heard,
Was startled with joy at Jesus' words.
Leaving her water-pot there on the ground,
She raced with alacrity back to the town.

"Come, come and see!" she called to the people,
"Come see a man who knew and revealed
My whole life, and all the things that I've done!
Is this the Messiah? Could he be the one?"
