John Chapter 8 Vs 1-20
A Woman Caught in Adultery.* [
Then each went to his own house,while Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.* aBut early in the morning he arrived again in the temple area, and all the people started coming to him, and he sat down and taught them.Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery and made her stand in the middle.They said to him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery.Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women.* So what do you say?"bThey said this to test him, so that they could have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with his finger.** But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them,c "Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her."Again he bent down and wrote on the ground.And in response, they went away one by one, beginning with the elders. So he was left alone with the woman before him.Then Jesus straightened up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?"dShe replied, "No one, sir." Then Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you. Go, [and] from now on do not sin any more."]e
The Light of the World.*Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."fSo the Pharisees said to him, "You testify on your own behalf, so your testimony cannot be verified."Jesus answered and said to them, "Even if I do testify on my own behalf, my testimony can be verified,* because I know where I came from and where I am going. But you do not know where I come from or where I am going.gYou judge by appearances,* but I do not judge anyone.hAnd even if I should judge, my judgment is valid, because I am not alone, but it is I and the Father who sent me.iEven in your law* it is written that the testimony of two men can be verified.jI testify on my behalf and so does the Father who sent me."kSo they said to him, "Where is your father?" Jesus answered, "You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also."lHe spoke these words while teaching in the treasury in the temple area. But no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.
