The woman caught in adultery; leaders caught in hypocrisy; and Jesus King of mercy (Growing Deeper with John 7:53-8:11)

“Let he who is without sin be the first to cast a stone…”

It’s one of the most famous sayings of Jesus. They caught a woman in the act of adultery. They used her as a pawn. They wanted to test Jesus. What would he say? Would he deny the law of Moses? How could he show compassion in the face of such sin?

Everyone was watching.

The Pulse Podcast is about living abundantly wholeheartedly. It includes different kinds of content: Interviews, featured topics, or biblical studies. This episode is the later–an in-depth look at John 7:53-8:11.

Before taking us through the text, I provide an explanation about why this story is not in the oldest manuscripts of the Bible. ‘Then why talk about it at all?’ I explain that too.

Then I provide an application for us today. Grace opens doors.


The sermon connected to this same section of text is called “Grace opens doors” and can be accessed here.
