“She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.”
She was brought to Jesus by the scribes and Pharisees.
“And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.”
She was found in the act of adultery, a crime that was punishable by death by stoning.
“Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?”
They used her to tempt Jesus.
“This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.”
He ignored them at first, but they persisted.
“So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.”
After Jesus spoke her accusers departed one by one.
“And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.”
She could have fled like the convicted accusers, yet she remained.
She ended up alone with Jesus.
Just her and Him.
“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?”
She did not try to defend herself.
She simply answered His question while acknowledging Who He is.
She called Him Lord.
She became a new creature after her experience with Jesus.
The Woman In Adultery serves as an example of the transformation that can take place when we are with Jesus.
