THE VOICES OF CONDEMNATION SAY…

- “Now I’ve got you! Everybody will know what you’ve done!” (v3)

- “It’s true, you are guilty, the Law says so!” (v4)

- “The Law demands that you be punished!” (v5)

- “If you admit it, you’re guilty. If you deny it, you’re a liar. Either way, you lose.” (v6)          

 - “Okay Christ, what are you waiting for?! Shame on him! Shame on her! The truth and the Law demand it!” (v7)

THE VOICE OF CHRIST

- Is slow to speak (v6)

- “The one who has never sinned may proceed with the execution.” (v7)

- Is heard first by the wise (v9)

- Reveals the lack of authority in the voices of condemnation (v10-11)
