Love Does Not Condemn

At daybreak, Jesus appeared again in the Temple. He had taken his seat and was engaged in teaching, when the scribes and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught committing adultery.

Making her stand in the middle, they said to him, ‘Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of adultery. In the law, Moses has laid down that such women are to be stoned. What do you say about it?’

Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. When they continued to press their question he sat up straight and said,’ Let which of you is free from sin throw the first stone.’

Then once again he bent down and wrote on the ground. When they heard what he said, one by one they went away, the eldest first; and Jesus was left alone, with the woman still standing there.

Jesus again sat up and said to the woman,’ Where are they? Has no one condemned you?’

She answered,’ No one, Sir.’

‘ Then neither do I condemn you,’ Jesus said.’ Go; And do not sin again.’

(John 8: 2-11)
