John 8


But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, Heb. 12:22

Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. John 8:22

TEACHING [Past posts below]

Most of us are familiar with John 8- Jesus says the famous quote ‘he that is without sin- cast the first stone’.
I talk instead about how radical his statement was- he basically was saying ‘ok- go ahead and kill her’.
The religious leaders were not interested in the fact that Jesus was their Messiah- instead they were always trying to engage him in a debate.
So that’s what they were doing here ‘hey Jesus- we caught this woman in a sin that Moses says is worthy of death’.
Remember- the Jews were under Roman occupation at the time- and did not have the power to carry out an execution.
That’s why they had to accuse Jesus before Pilate- so he could carry out the dirty deed.
So- even though the Law of Moses said there were crimes punishable by death- the Jews at the time did not have the authority to carry out such a judgment.
Now- when Jesus says ‘go ahead- he that has no sin- start throwing’.
They were caught off guard- as well as the poor woman! [Some sites see the rest here ]
Jesus forgives her- and tells her to sin no more.
