"that's funny" so are you...<quoted text>that's funny
the point is they didn't need his approval to stone her. he said go ahead if you can but they didn't did they.
Jesus was not he proper authority to be the accusation to. they didn't even bother to take her to the authorities now did they?
so there is no contradiction because they didn't follow the law.
"the point is they didn't need his approval to stone her. he said go ahead if you can but they didn't did they." Because Jesus said that the man without sin may throw the first stone, how can you say that Jesus wanted to make them seek his consent when making criteria such as the above implies you wish to limit something? I have to say you cant.
"Jesus was not he proper authority" well thats not news to me... but this is "they didn't even bother to take her to the authorities now did they?" read it again...The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...
The Pharisees and the teachers of law are the authorities, it wasnt some mob that dragged the woman to Jesus it was the authorities them selfs.
