1.5 No. 274 – The Tale of the Woman Taken in Adultery

The well-known Tale of the Woman Taken in Adultery found in John 8:3–11 is popular because it portrays Christ Jesus as non-judgmental and unconditionally forgiving. But, despite its popularity, the tale has no rightful place in the Canon of Scripture. It is a spurious addition, and not a part of the Gospel Account attributed to John. It evidences it illegimacy by presenting an erroneous portrayal of the incarnate Christ, by misrepresenting the character of the Talmudic Jew, and by mocking the Law of Moses. The tale is an example of the Leaven of the Jew, against which Jesus and the Apostles repeatedly warned.
