Jesus & the woman caught in adultery - Purity Version

From Patti Hornback Mobley


What would the Bible be like if God valued purity more than people? Consider how a well-known story might have ended:

The scribes and Pharisees brought to Jesus a woman who had been caught in adultery. Throwing her at his feet, they said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. In the law, Moses commanded us to stone such a woman. What do you say?"

Jesus said to them, "...The law is clear. We'll have to kill her."

And saying that, he picked up a rock and threw it at her, striking her in the head.

The scribes and Pharisees joined in with great enthusiasm, throwing stones at the woman until she was dead.

Then Jesus turned to them and said, "Let she who is with sin be stoned."

And the scribes and Pharisees marveled at his devotion to purity.
