Jesus and Sinners (#1)

Today’s reading is Jesus and the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11). Again, the purpose of our study is to examine Jesus behavior and consider how we can be like Him. There are several considerations in the example of Jesus concerning this case.  What do you see in the example of Jesus concerning:

(1) How He chose to deal with the woman’s sin.

(2) How He treated the woman (especially in contrast to the scribes and Pharisees).

One Response to Jesus and Sinners (#1)

  1. Mary K

    First Jesus got rid of the bullies. Then He treated her as one worthy of forgiveness. Lastly He established an expectation that she move on but sin no more. As always there are many things I can learn from Jesus’ example. What comes quickly to mind is in dealing with others it is important that I not be influenced by a mob, but see each individual as having worth. Condemnation by itself accomplishes nothing. Encouragement can save a soul.
