PASSAGE: JOHN 8:1-11



1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

JOHN 8:1-11



Our passage today contains one of the remarkable stories written in the Gospel account that illustrates the great mercy, compassion, and grace of Jesus our Lord.

ACT OF ADULTERY
The Case Presented (v. 3b-5)

They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?"

“If a man commits adultery with another man's wife — with the wife of his neighbor — both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death.”
Leviticus 20:10

“If a man is found sleeping with another man's wife, both the man who slept with her and the woman must die. You must purge the evil from Israel.”
Deuteronomy 22:22

But where is the man?

It takes two to commit adultery. It may be that they let the man considering the woman was caught in act. Without the man, the case being presented was not concrete. It reveals the hypocrisy of the teachers of the law and the Pharisees.

It reveals their real intention was not to exercise the Law but to have grounds to accused Jesus if the Lord mishandled the case presented to Him

. “They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing Him.”
John 8:6

THE RESPONSE OF JESUS
To the Case Presented to Him (v.6b-8)

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning Him, He straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

"If any one of you is without sin...”

    • Romans 3:10 says there is no righteous not even one.

 

    • Romans 3:23 says that all have sin and fallen short of God.

 

    • Romans 6:23 says that the penalty of sin is death.

 

    • Act of adultery is not sin worthy of death alone but all kinds of sin.

 

  • Since all have sinned, all sinners not only those who committed adultery were condemned to die and be put to death.



How did Jesus act on the case presented to Him?

    • Jesus did not make any specific and straight response to the case.

 

  • Challenged the people to cast stone first if they don’t have sin.



Did Jesus tolerate sin and took it lightly in the life of the adulterous woman?

    • Jesus never tolerates sin and takes it lightly when He saved the woman from being stoned.

 

    • He never says that the adulterous woman was not guilty.

 

    • He did not say that her sin does not matter.

 

    • Jesus said, "Then neither do I condemn you, go now and leave your life of sin.” (v.11)



Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”
Romans 8:1-2

EXAMPLE AND MODEL OF JESUS IN DEALING SIN

How do we confront sin in the life of other people?

    • Confront your inner self before confront the sin of others.

 

    • Confront a person by having in mind that we ourselves are not perfect.

 

    • Confront a person of their sin done with concern and compassion.

 

    • Confront a person with a motive and purpose that will bring healing and restoration.

 

    • Confront a person without condemning.



MORAL LESSON IN PASSING JUDGMENT

Jesus answered, "Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going. You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two men is valid. I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me.“
John 8:14-18

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.”
Matthew 7:1-5
