Where are your accusers

BUT JESUS went to the Mount of Olives. Early in the morning (at dawn), He came back into the temple [court], and the people came to Him in crowds. He sat down and was teaching them, [Deut. 22:22-24.] (John 8:1, 2 AMP)

Jesus was at the Mount of Olives through the night near to His Heavenly Father. He was going to be tested in the morning and He needed to be wise as a snake and innocent as a dove. (Matthew 10:16) Even more so He needed mercy and love for a lady who had been ravaged by sin.

He left His sweet time on the Mount of Olives to come down at dawn. The people came to Him and He taught them. That's when the ruckus happened. The cruel, holier-than-thou Pharisees dragged a lady of the evening and tossed her on the ground before Him. They said, "Moses' law said stone her....what do you say Jesus?" Jesus was gentle and healing and didn't throw stones and they knew this would be a test for Him. God's word or gentleness? Either way He loses or so those Pharisees thought.

Jesus wrote on the ground for a few minutes. The Bible doesn't say what He wrote. Maybe what He wrote wasn't for the Pharisees but for the ravaged lady. Maybe it told of the kindnesses she had shown, how she had cried out to God for rescue, and telling her watch what happens next. The Pharisees got irritated with Him and impatiently said "What should we do?" So Jesus said "If you're without sin you throw the first stone." They couldn't say they were sinless...all we like sheep have gone astray... So, convicted, they left one by one.

Jesus spoke with the lady and said "where are your accusers? No one condemns you and neither do I. Go with a blanket of peace on your heart and don't get yourself into sin any more. I love you."

the video shows that not much has changed today.
