The Woman Caught In Adultery

Q. According to the Gospel of John, the Pharisees, in an attempt to discredit Jesus, brought a woman charged with adultery before him. Then they reminded Jesus that adultery was punishable by stoning under Mosaic law and challenged him to judge the woman. They were hoping to accuse him of disobeying the law by showing her mercy. Jesus thought for a moment and then replied, “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her.”

The people around him were so convicted by their own consciences that they quickly departed. When Jesus found himself alone with the woman, he asked her who were her accusers. She replied, “No man, lord.” Jesus then said, “Neither do I condemn thee: go and sin no more.”

Did Jesus uphold the Mosaic law or not?

Questions From An Unbeliever

Q. My girlfriend is an unbeliever who has quite a bit of trust in science and its theories, and now and again we have discussions that boil down to reasons she doesn’t believe in God. I asked her to tell me what she doesn’t understand, and that I would put them in an email and send them to you, as my answers ‘are the ones Christians always give.’ These are honest questions from her and are the actual reasons that stop her from looking for God. In her own words, she just doesn’t understand it all.
