How can a cup of water have more thermal energy than one pitcher of water?

• Science -

let's assume there is a cup of boiling water at 100 degrees and lake water at 24 degrees, the regular water would have more thermal energy because of the thermal energy it is absorbing from the sun, but the boiling water requires more energy to be heated.
