For some strange reason, modern versions (or should I say perversions) of the Bible do not contain this incident.


"And every man went unto his own house...Jesus went unto the mount of Olives".

a) A lonely climb. The people had their homes but Christ went to Olivet because He was homeless.

b) A lovely climb. Although the passage does not specifically state it, I believe the Saviour went to the mountain to pray. He was preparing for the battles of the following day. We need to prepare in prayer.


"This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him".

a) Holiness that was a sham

b) Hatred that was a shame

The self-righteous hypocrisy of the scribes and Pharisees was a worse crime against God than the adultery.

Why didn’t they bring the man since she was caught "in the very act"?


"Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not...And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground".

a) A time for repentance. Jesus stooped and wrote to give the religious men time to repent of their hatred for Jesus and the woman.

b) A time for reassurance. "Neither do I condemn thee". "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1).
