John 8: 10 Straightening up, Yeshua said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?”
11 “No one, Sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Yeshua said. “Go, and sin no more.” source
We know the story, right? The woman was brought to Jesus by the Pharisees; not because they cared about her or her sins; they were there on an entrapment mission. Read again what happened when they all dropped their stones, from the oldest to the youngest, and walked away.
I think she was scared. Don’t you? I think she was waiting for the stinging and the bleeding to begin. It didn’t. Can we imagine her relief? Can we imagine her breathless, barely audible voice as she said: “No one, Sir.”?
Can we identify?
Yeshua stood between she and the stones. Is Jesus standing between you and a stoning? He is willing to, you know.
