Top  Previous  Next

Jun 17 8.3 Jesus went to Mount Olives. At dawn he returned to the temple, the people came to him, he sat and taught them. Scribes and Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They stood her before the crowd and said to Jesus, tempting him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of adultery. Moses commanded us in the law to stone such, what do you say?” Jesus stooped and wrote on the ground with his finger, when they kept questioning him, he stood and said, “Let him who is sinless throw the first stone.” Again he stooped and resumed writing on the ground. Her accusers began leaving one by one until only Jesus and the woman were left. He asked, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No sir,” she said. “Then neither do I,” Jesus declared, “Go, and sin no more.”
