Jesus is in the Temple teaching when a group of religious charlatans shows up with a woman caught “in the very act” of adultery. If Jesus says, “Don’t stone her,” then they can demonstrate that He contradicts the Law of Moses, and therefore isn’t a Man of God. If He says, “Stone her,” then they can accuse Him of not being the friend of sinners He claims to be. Will He be just or merciful? What can we learn from how He handles this situation?
