“Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” Did Jesus act with all grace and no truth, or all truth and no grace? — or both? This sermon explores John 5:53-8:11 (a text not in the oldest biblical manuscripts) and considers what we can learn from it about opening doors to others.
“Let he who is without sin be the first to cast a stone…” So said Jesus to those wanting to stone the woman caught in adultery. Why did he say it? Did he condone sin? How are grace and truth balanced? That’s what I explore in this episode which is a Bible study on John 7:53-8:11 (a story not in our oldest manuscripts).
