Jesus Judgement Mercy Sin

Jesus goes beyond the law

“And so Jesus, who wanted “to be alone with the woman and speak to her heart,” answered, “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” And then “they went away one by one” Then came the moment “of Jesus confessor. “Neither do I condemn you. Go, [and] from now on do not sin any more. Jesus forgives. But there is something more than forgiveness. Jesus goes beyond the law. The law stated that she must be punished. He does not say adultery is not a sin, but he does not condemn her with the law. This is “The mystery of the mercy of Jesus.”
