Positive Realism

  John 4:1 And so, when Jesus realized that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made more disciples and baptized more than John, 2 (though Jesus himself was not baptizing, but only his disciples) 4 Now he needed to cross through Samaria. 5 Therefore, he went into a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the estate which Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6 And Jacobs well was there. And so Jesus, being tired from the journey, was sitting in a certain way on the well. It was about the sixth hour.
7 A woman of Samaria arrived to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me to drink."
8 For his disciples had gone into the city in order to buy food.

9 And so, that Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, being a Jew, are requesting a drink from me, though I am a Samaritan woman?" For the Jews do not associate with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus responded and said to her: "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who is saying to you, Give me to drink, perhaps you would have made a request of him, and he would have given you living water."
11 The woman said to him: "Lord, you do not have anything with which to draw water, and the well is deep. From where, then, do you have living water?
12 Surely, you are not greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and who drank from it, with his sons and his cattle?"

13 Jesus responded and said to her: "All who drink from this water will thirst again. But whoever shall drink from the water that I will give to him will not thirst for eternity.
Mark 15:40 Now there were also women watching from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joseph, and Salome,

41 (and while he was in Galilee, they followed him and ministered to him) and many other women, who had ascended along with him to Jerusalem.
42 And when evening had now arrived (because it was the Preparation Day, which is before the Sabbath)

43 there arrived Joseph of Arimathea, a noble council member, who himself was also awaiting the kingdom of God. And he boldly entered to Pilate and petitioned for the body of Jesus.

44 But Pilate wondered if he had already died. And summoning a centurion, he questioned him as to whether he was already dead.

45 And when he had been informed by the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.

46 Then Joseph, having bought a fine linen cloth, and taking him down, wrapped him in the fine linen and laid him in a sepulcher, which was hewn from a rock. And he rolled a stone to the entrance of the tomb.

47 Now Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joseph observed where he was laid.
Revelations 5: 1 And in the right hand of the One sitting upon the throne, I saw a book, written inside and out, sealed with seven seals.

2 And I saw a strong Angel, proclaiming with a great voice, "Who is worthy to open the book and to break its seals?"

3 And no one was able, neither in heaven, nor on earth, nor under the earth, to open the book, nor to gaze upon it.

4 And I wept greatly because no one was found worthy to open the book, nor to see it.

5 And one of the elders said to me: "Weep not. Behold, the lion from the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has prevailed to open the book and to break its seven seals."

6 And I saw, and behold, in the midst of the throne and the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb was standing, as if it were slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God, sent forth to all the earth.
