Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Theology - Biblical Theology, grade: 90, King`s College London, language: English, abstract: This essay analyses the stoning of the woman in John 8:1-11, and Jesus coming to her aid. When looking at the book of John in the Gospels, we are able to see Jesus as a person prompting decision from the people. Brodre, a biblical commentator, writes on how John sows Jesus as a 'God-man' on earth. His Gospel is simple and straightforward. For the most part, Brodre puts to terms understanding this Gospel properly. However, when focusing on some stories, there are more complicated interpretations of Jesus' teachings, creating assumptions that these pieces were added to the writing later after the original writer's death. The scripture of the woman caught in adultery is an example of a writing commonly interpreted to be brought in later, but very significant. When specifically zooming in on the passage of John 8: 1-11, we see of Jesus being presented with a difficult situation. The leaders bring before him a woman who was caught in adultery. Through studying this section, we will look closer at the first part of John 8, and how Jesus attempts at bringing women to a higher, if not equal status with men. He does this through bringing to light the fact that all people are equal in the eyes of God, for all are guilty with sin, and are capable of receiving redemption.
