The Story Of Jesus: A Woman Guilty

Decent Essays

Following morning after the Feast of Booths, while Jesus is teaching at the temple, the pharisees brought forth a woman guilty of adultery. They attempted to entrap Jesus by forcing him to choose between the harsh Mosaic Law which dictates that the woman would be stoned (Deuteronomy 22:22) or between providing her with mercy for her sins.

Slowly the crowd leaves one by one, until, Jesus and the women are left alone, to which he tells her to "go, and sin no more."
