The Wife of Bath references a passage from the Bible (John 4:16-18) where Jesus talks to a Samaritan woman at the well. The actual passage reads: 16 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.”

17 “I have no husband,” she replied.

Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. 18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”

In the passage, what does Jesus mean when he says the man she now has is not her husband?
  1. It is impossible to have six husbands.
  2. She is not married to the man she is currently with.
  3. Only the first husband counts.
  4. The woman is a widower.
