Jesus of Nazareth does it again...
Dec 14th AD 31
In Jerusalem today we learnt that whilst he is quick to preach his now archetypal radical message, Jesus doesn't seem to like be posed with difficult questions. Our nation's leaders applied some much needed scrutiny to this vagabond-preacher today in the Temple Courts. A woman caught in the act of adultery was brought before Jesus to pose for him the straight-forward legal question of how she should be punished.
For several minutes, rather than answer the question, he stalled for time by drawing on the ground. When finally pressed for an answer Jesus replied: "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." Of course, none of us would claim to be perfect but surely - most will be asking - you have to draw the line somewhere? Apparently afterwards Jesus encouraged the woman to go free and hinted that no condemnation was due her! Although the exact words he said are known only to her and she could not be located for comment.
No amount of clever word play can ever excuse immorality. Nothing but the complete collapse of decent society is to be found is we allow ourselves to follow that path.
