The fountain of youth has been dreamed about since the early Greek philosophers, maybe even earlier. Herodotus fantasized about this fountain in the 5th century BC. The concept was revived during the Crusades by Prester John. I suppose one way to motivate medieval troops to march across Europe to defend the Holy Land is to promise a fountain of eternal youth. Probably the most famous reiteration of the legend of the fabled fountain is that which so affected the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León. He was told by Native Americans that the fountain of youth lay in a mystical place. His search led him in 1513 to a mystical place now called Florida. Unfortunately, Ponce de León was misled. He never found the fountain of youth.
It is fantastic, over the years, what has been done in the quest for living water. It seems that the search continues, albeit metaphorically, to this day. As we've seen already, Jesus offers living water to those who are interested. Although it’s easy to drink once it’s found, the search is often a frustrating and baffling journey. There are many missmarked signposts, bridge trolls, and adversaries along the road to that fabled fountain. It seems that each generation after Christ has had to find again the water that will bring life. In some generations since Christ it has been in very short supply.
On any search for the fountain, there must be a map. There must be some instructions. The question that arises in this metaphorical land is, “Where do we look for the living water Jesus promises?” That is the question that this section will aim to answer.
