(quote) Gary-936836 said: Actually, both men and women who commit adultery are supposed to be stoned for it. The Pharisees in John 7:53-8:11 were trying to trap Jesus by specifically only bringing a half-naked woman and then saying. "Law says to stone her! You support the Law, don't you Jesus?" But if Jesus said "yes, stone her!" it would make him seem utterly heartless to attack a helpless, frightened, not-clothed woman.
That was an exceptional circumstance brought about by hypocrites. The Law properly calls for the death of all adulterers, as well as their paramours.
And Jesus also said, "He is without sin, then throw the first stone." This is what we need to learn as Christians.
