“Jesus never humiliated her (regarding the woman at the well). He simply lifted her out of her filth and gently clothed her in the righteousness of her Heavenly Father. In Jesus there is such perfect manliness, such perfect security in His own sense of manhood, that He is free from the prison of having to put women down to prove that He is man. Jesus never intimidated or sexually threatened a woman, and He was never threatened or intimidated by a woman. There was no lewd look, no coarse jesting with Jesus. He didn’t have to prove anything- because He’s 100% man. 

That’s why both men and women are equally attracted to Jesus. Jesus lifted and affirmed every woman who came to Him. Women find in Him the man they wish every man could be. And men see in Him the man they know they ought to be.”
