Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.2Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him and he sat down and began to teach them.3The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery; and making her stand before all of them, 4they said to him, ‘Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery.5
Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?’6They said this to test him, so that they might have some charge to bring against him.
Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground.7When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, ‘Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.’8
