Thought this was a good article on the woman caught in adultery. From the article:
This story opens with the scribes and Pharisees leveling a test at Jesus’ feet. Jesus sat in the women’s court of the temple, teaching the people.
Seeking to entrap Jesus, the scribes and Pharisees burst into the women’s court and threw a married (or betrothed) woman before Him. They “caught” her in the act of adultery and seized her. Consider the specific test they were putting forth: “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now the Law of Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?”
And now we press the question that is so rarely asked whenever this story is read.
Who is this woman?
The answer may surprise you.
She’s you. And she’s us.
