10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
What a powerful response from Jesus! What mercy and grace! But what about the law and justice and righteousness? Doesn’t someone need to be found guilty?
This woman was obviously guilty of adultery. They caught her in the very act! So why didn’t Jesus condemn her? You might say, “It’s because He chose to be merciful.” That’s wonderful except for one fact: He’d have to break His own law to do that!
Did the woman deserve justice or mercy? Find out in this episode!
