Bible story: The woman caught in adultery

Creative activities based on the Bible story of The woman caught in adultery

In John 8:1-11, a group of scribes and Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery to Jesus and asked him whether she should be stoned, as required by the law of Moses. Instead of answering, Jesus wrote something on the ground with his finger. When the accusers persisted in asking him, Jesus replied, "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her."

After the accusers left one by one, Jesus turned to the woman and asked her where her accusers were. When she said they were gone, he told her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more."

This story highlights Jesus' compassion and forgiveness, and challenges us to approach others with grace and humility, rather than judgment and condemnation.
