The Life of Jesus, Part 5 (5/10)

DAY 1 OF 5

You are guilty!

It happens to me all the time. I try to blame people for the mistakes that I make. “Where were you? I was looking for you!” While I left home too late. Shame on me! Someone told me once: When you point your finger at someone, three fingers are pointing back at you.

In Jesus’ life, people were often trying to catch Jesus on a mistake.

This time, they caught a woman who committed adultery. A huge crime in those days. Strangely enough, we don’t hear about the man, who should have been involved surely.

The spiritual leaders ask Jesus what to do. According to their law, the woman should be given the death penalty. It is clear that Jesus doesn’t want to answer this question. In his mind that is not the solution to what had happened. They keep pushing Jesus to answer so he puts a mirror in front of all the people. Have you never done something wrong? Do you have a clear conscience? For Jesus, that is the key element. Everyone on this planet is guilty of wrong-doing. So, let’s not try to see who's better or worse. The key is: we all need forgiveness.

Everyone disappears. They admit they are not perfect, they too have sinned. Then, Jesus is alone with the woman. And you know, Jesus was without sin. He did not do anything wrong, ever. He had the right to condemn her. But he didn’t.

This is also the case for you. Whatever you did wrong, go to Jesus, confess your guilt and he will set you free. That was the whole purpose of his life. Setting people free!
