John 8 Ruth
Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. 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.
And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and
when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in
adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned:
but what sayest thou? 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. 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 at her.
And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 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. 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 condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said
unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders,
said, We are witnesses. The LORD make the woman that is come into
thine house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel: and do
thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Bethlehem:
The Book of Ruth is the first book of the Bible to be named after a woman. It tells the story of
Ruth who was redeemed by Boaz, a type of Christ who redeemed the woman caught in adultery. A careful
reading of Ruth's redemption by Boaz in chapter 4 reveals many links with John 8, the most obvious being
the redemption of a woman before many witnesses. I will
document as I get more time.
No condemnation in Christ Jesus

And Jesus said unto her,

||There is therefore now no condemnation to them
which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the
Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free
from the law of sin and death.|
