John Chapter 8
8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the
people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in
adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the
8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but
what sayest thou?
8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him.
But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as
though he heard them not.
8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said
unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone
8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience,
went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and
Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he
said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man
8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I
condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the
world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have
the light of life.
John Chapter 3
3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but
that the world through him might be saved.
