In today’s story of The Adulteress Woman, we meet a woman caught in the act of sin who waited when she could have escaped.
We meet the Adulteress in John chapter 8, but in order for us to fully appreciate her story, we need to understand the time period in which it takes place.
Tension was building up. Jesus was at the Feast of Tabernacles saying things people didn’t understand. None of it made sense. Many were rejecting Him. The rulers were seeking an opportunity to bring Him in for questioning, but they didn’t have just cause. It was a time of confusion and chaos. No one knew what to think. Frustrated, they waited for the opportunity to arise to get rid of Jesus so they could go back to their status quo. John chapter 7 closes with, “everyone went to his own house.”
Then chapter 8 opens with, “But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.”
