Main point summary
Jesus went overnight to the Mount of Olives. When He came back down in the morning, He taught the people in the temple. Pharisees and scribes brought a woman caught in adultery to Jesus to see if He'd condemn her. Jesus saved the woman from the people ready to stone her and forgave her.
Notes
I find it fascinating how Jesus practiced teaching graciously divine lessons when cornered by His opposition. The Pharisees had noticed Jesus as a friend of the poor and sinful. Yet, a righteous man amid sinners. They were perplexed; how could anyone be associated closely with vile sinners without eventually partaking in the same sins? And why were they not able to convict Him of anything unlawful? Now, a favourable circumstance seemed to arise when the guards brought a woman caught in the act of adultery. Would Jesus neglect the sin of adultery and favour His poor friends, or would He enact the law and stone the adulterer? It's helpful to remember John's teaching on sin to make more sense of what happened in this story. Sin, in the Gospel of John, is addressed on a deeper level than just actions. John teaches that the root of all human sin lies in a broken relationship with God. Sin, according to John, is a life without faith in God. The Pharisees are set on the same level as the adulterous women when evaluated on John's sin description. The Pharisees didn't believe in God; otherwise, they had accepted Jesus. The woman didn't believe in God; otherwise, she had not committed adultery. Jesus looked at the scene of an adulterer surrounded by people flawed fundamentally by the same root-sin. In light of this, Jesus's response was excellent! "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her." Convicted by their God-given conscience, they all went their way without harming the woman. The woman must have been frightened to death throughout the scene and tremendously grateful when Jesus asked: "Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?" She responded: "No one, Lord." And Jesus said to her: "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more." In the beginning, an adulterer was about to be stoned to death. Lastly, an adulterer was pardoned and fundamentally changed by a commitment of allegiance to God in human form as Lord, that is, Jesus. Substitution in this Story The Jewish law demanded the stoning of adulterers. Jesus had no sin and could've thrown the first stone, but why didn't He throw it then if the law required it? Because Jesus loved her in the following way: He transferred the punishment for her adultery to the future event of His substitutional death on the cross. That is the only basis by which He forgives and remains just as the eternal, righteous, and loving God.
