The Beautiful Life
“However, when they persisted with their question, He raised Himself up and said, Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7 AMP)
Here, Jesus made a significant statement about judging others. Because Jesus upheld the legal penalty for adultery, stoning, etc., Jesus could not be accused of being against the law. But by saying that only a sinless person could throw that first stone, Jesus had highlighted the importance of compassion and forgiveness.
“No one can come to the Father; but by Me…” (John 14:6).
“The sacrifice of Christ as atonement for sin is the great truth around which all other truths cluster.” (Gal 6:14)
