Problem, how is this relevant to the topic of did Jesus make a contradiction when he said those without sin throw the first stone.<quoted text>not only was the law of moses not followed, the law of the day was not followed.
The infrequency of the death penalty was attributable to the meticulous application of stringent rules regarding the admissibility and sufficiency of evidence. A court of at least 23 judges would have to be satisfied, to a legal certainty, that the capital offense had been committed before the court could impose a death sentence. Since the testimony of two eye-witnesses was required, and the witnesses were subjected to searching and detailed interrogation by the court, there was rarely an instance when the evidence met the prescribed legal standard. See Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Book of Judges, Sanhedrin, chapter XII4.
Jesus had no legal authority to pass judgement. the problem was neither did the accusers.
you said this;
"When one quotes or describes the stories in it, you copy/write it down and give the book chapter and verse."
however i had said this;
second of all, they did not follow the law in their attempt to trick Jesus.(Lev 20:10; Deut 22:22-24)”
seems to me i did reference the source of the OT law.
you are the one who is confused.
No I still can’t say sorry as I think you point would have been clearer like this “the reason why the teachers asked Jesus what they should do with the adulteress was to see if he would go against the law of the Old Testament on this matter (said laws can be found in Lev 20:10 and Deut 22:22-24)” Yes I am the one who is confused and I am the one who missed your point here but you are the one who made me so.
