Temple Lesson on Sin

today's reading.
John 8:1-11    But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them...

the blog.
The Pharisees bring a woman who has been caught in adultery to the temple where Jesus is teaching. They want Jesus to condemn the woman to death by stoning, but Jesus doesn't comply. Instead, he replies "Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her." Well Jesus is the only person there who fits this description and He isn't throwing anything. Before you know it, everyone is gone except Jesus and the woman, and Jesus tells her that He has not condemned her and to go and sin no more.

There's a lot going on in this passage. So what did you learn about sin from each of the characters in this passage? Tami W.

P.S. I've posted a picture from Jerusalem on my blog, so check it out if you have a second.
