894. The Law Says She Should Be Stoned - So Why Wasn't She?

We're familiar with the story of the woman caught in the act of adultery who the Pharisees brought before Jesus ... who was teaching in the temple with plenty of witnesses. Of course, they could have stoned her anywhere, but they saw an opportunity to try to trap Jesus into saying something that opposed the law—which would be punishable by death. They knew He wasn't likely to pass judgement on the woman, so they thought they had Him between a rock and a hard place.

Did Jesus somehow go against the law of Moses or disregard it in some way? Some might be left with this impression, but Jesus wasn't about to go against a law that needed to remain in place until He would eventually fulfill it. We provide a perspective on how all of this went down, and why the Pharisees released their rubble and walked away—in spite of the law still being in place and what it had declared.
