The Woman Caught In Adultery

This took many sittings. It is based on John 8. The Pharisees and scribes are about to stone to death the woman (adulteress) and are testing Jesus concerning the law of Moses. ….what did he write in the dust on the ground in front of them? John 8 does not say, but that may be because it got rubbed out. The Lord revealed it was Leviticus 20 verse 10. This is painted as the text would have been in Hebrew and facing them, which is why they look shame faced. This brilliant retort showed them that they had erred in law, because the male adulterer is nowhere to be found in John 8. Then the final knockout punch was the legendary line “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. ”
