Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them.  And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.  For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed….  They believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized.  Acts 8:5-7, 12 NJKV

You have begun to live the new life, in which you are being made new and are becoming like the One who made you.  This new life brings you to the true knowledge of God.  In the new life there is no difference between Greeks and Jews, those who are circumcised and those who are not circumcised, or people who are foreigners, or Scythians.  There is no difference between slaves and free people.  But Christ is in all believers, and Christ is all that is important.  Colossians 3:10

Samaritans were blacklisted.  Their beds, utensils – even their spittle – was considered unclean.
