well what i think is he had to go so he could witness to the people of samaria and to show God loves everyone not just the Jewish people I believe that God told him to and to show he did not hate them. If he did go around he still wouldn't show hatred torward them because if he did then Jesus would of sinned and his purpose of being here ( being the second Adam to do what Adam couldn't do) would come to an end. Jesus went through Samaria so that God would be glorified! Samaria was a place were the people did not know the true and living God but through Jesus encounter with the woman at the well, the Gospel was proclaimed and people in Samaria came to know God and give glory to him.
