New or True – John 8:7-9

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

John 8:7
When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there.

This has been a verse often used to defend the view that Yeshua came to do away with the Law of Moses and show a new way to live that was all about love. What many don’t realize is that Yeshua was actually keeping the law here. In fact, this whole scenario was created as a trap to make Yeshua break the law according to verse 5 and 6.

The law required both the woman and the man to be stoned and those who caught them were to be the first to cast the stone. So was Yeshua declaring something new or keeping that which is true?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
