Fifth Sunday of Lent
“Jesus said, Go and sin no more”
The leaders of the community take the adulterous woman to Jesus as a way to trap him. The Law requires them to stone her to death. Jesus is silent. He seems to be writing on the ground.
Jesus redirects their gaze from the woman to themselves, causing hands to drop stones and feet to leave. His words continue to address us, when we are about to cast stones of condemnation at another. Jesus’ final words to the woman also apply to us: “Go and sin no more.”
