John 4:5 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Then (οὖν)

Not a particle of time, but of logical connection. Therefore, going by this route, He must needs, etc.

City

Not implying a place of great size or importance. Compare John 11:54; Matthew 2:23.

Sychar

Commonly identified with Schechem, the modern Nablous, and regarded as a corruption of Sichem. Some modern authorities, however, argue that a place so famous as Schechem would not be referred to under another name, and identify the site with Askar, about two miles east of Nablous. The name Sychar means drunken-town or lying-town.

Parcel of ground (χωρίου)

A diminutive from χώρα a region.
