We find the “Scarlet Letter” Story… John 8:1-11

Woman caught ‘red-handed’ by those that obeyed Moses’ law – asking Jesus what should be done ’cause she broke the law…  (Deut 22:22 – ‘put to death’)  The law had convicted her & they hoped Jesus would condemn her (since they were ‘too holy’ to do it outright!)

Would Jesus follow the law?  Would he put her to death?             NO!

He bent down, wrote in the sand… and preached a little sermon:

“Punishments for law violations should be administered by the perfect & guiltless… only He was worthy to judge!”

But he tells them – He did not come to convict them – nor to condemn them… (Lk. 9:56)
