But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
At sunrise he arrived in the temple courtyard again. All the people gathered around him there. He sat down to teach them.
The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman. She had been caught in adultery. They made her stand in front of the group.
They said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught having sex with a man who was not her husband.
In the Law, Moses commanded us to kill such women by throwing stones at them. Now what do you say?"
They were trying to trap Jesus with that question. They wanted to have a reason to bring charges against him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger.
