Seeing Your Life through the Lens of the Gospels - John 8:1-11

Read 310 Times

John 8:1-11

Compassion for human frailty combined with a gentle challenge to a better life marked the response of Jesus. From whom have you experienced a compassionate challenge? What was that like for you? To whom have you given such a challenge?

The Pharisees and scribes self-righteously condemned the women until Jesus brought them in touch with their own sinfulness. This was a conversion moment for them and they turned away from their quest for the death of the woman. Have there been times when your awareness of your own fragility and sinfulness has helped you to be less judgemental of others?

"What do you say" can be an embarrassing question. Jesus had the courage to voice an opinion, even though it was against the party line of the day. When you have seen that courage shown - by yourself, or by another? What was the result?
