The woman caught in adultery
June 5, 22Pastor John www.EasTview.org
John 7.53 - 8.11
Deuteronomy 22.22 both shall die
John 8 there is no man. Where is the adulterer?
Jesus is full of grace and truth.
Grace is forgiveness oriented
Truth is justice oriented.
Most of us are flamingos standing on one foot
Neither is right or wrong
They thought Jesus was so grace oriented they would catch him
The Lord is merciful
The Pharisees (self-righteous ones) were setting a trap for Jesus with lots of holes.
Don't contribute to the problem by malicious accusations. Where is the guy? They caught the prostitute but not the John. They let him off.
What did Jesus write? Don't be a party to an injustice?
Don't cast the first stone unless you are without sin?
Maybe he listed sins, the secret ones.
Jesus stands up.
Are you judging others? Are you forgiving?
The oldest one stepped away first because they would be accountable for being unjust.
She said sir, not Lord. There is no indication of confession or repentance.
Jesus just said go. Sin no more.
We forego the gift of forgiveness by not asking for it.
The temple court is 4 football fields size. Lots of witnesses to the event.
Jesus gives this woman another chance at life.
Jesus wants you to get past your sin and be restored. He gives you a second chance. What do his words say to you? Read the Bible and see what he said.
