Caught in the Act!

John 8 has my attention again:

The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court, they said to Him,

"Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?"

John 8:3-5 NASB

Let’s look at what the Law of Moses says:

'If there is a man who commits adultery with another man's wife, one who commits adultery with his friend's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. - Leviticus 20:10 NASB

And again:

"If a man is found lying with a married woman, then both of them shall die, the man who lay with the woman, and the woman; thus you shall purge the evil from Israel. - Deuteronomy 22:22 NASB

Interesting to me that both of the above references begin with “If … a man…”

Oh yes – they both are guilty – they both must die.

Caught in the act?

Where’s the man?
