The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery.
They said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery. Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?”
“Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”
They went away one by one, beginning with the elders. So he was left alone with the woman before him.
Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
She replied, “No one, sir.”
Then Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go, and from now on do not sin any more.” (John 8:2-11)
Let’s step into this gospel passage. Let’s get into it ourselves, like a scene on a stage. Where do we fit into the scene? Let’s find ourselves in it. The Lord Jesus, the Pharisees, the adulteress, the bystanders…where are we?
