Jesus, what would you do?

Sunday, April 3, 2022

The early morning in the temple area was a beautiful place to be. Jesus enjoyed this time alone; praying and listening to his Father before the people sought him out for teaching. As he made his way to the temple the people had already started gathering to hear his teachings for the day. 

The day started as any other day, with a prayer and thanksgiving to God the Father, when suddenly a crowd of scribes and pharisees came into the middle of the group dragging a disheveled young woman with them, she was caught in the act of adultery they were screaming at her and she was screaming right back at them,” how dare you judge me.”  The Pharisees wanted to stone her, as the law of Moses commanded, what would you have us do, Jesus? 

Jesus began writing on the ground with his finger, but they continued, “Jesus! this is a sinful woman, she must be put to death, she is an enticer and an evil doer from a bad neighborhood. She is just a prostitute; the world would be better off without her.” Jesus, tell us what you would do? They wanted to trap Jesus in his own words so they could accuse him. Jesus stood up and said to them, “Let the one among you who is without sin cast the first stone; one by one they dropped their stones and left, and Jesus was left alone with Mary of Magdalene. Jesus forgave Mary and gave her a new life, through reconciliation and mercy. We too can have the same forgiveness. As we travel through the desert. Christ is always waiting for us on the other side.
