The Woman Liberated from Adultery
Series Men & Women of the Bible
The story is simple. A woman is taken in the very act of adultery and is hauled before Jesus, undoubtedly with a view to testing him. Whilst she stands exposed to shame he does not look at her, but writes in the dirt. Refusing to answer them directly as to her judgement, he then stands and asks who is without sin that he is prepared to stone the woman for her sin. The critics of Jesus, along with others, melt away. No one remains to accuse so the situation is changed. She is free to leave. Jesus warns her against further acts of sin.
