In John chapter 8 of the Bible (NIV version), Jesus engages in several significant encounters and teachings. Early in the chapter, Jesus is confronted by the religious leaders who bring a woman caught in adultery before him. They ask him if she should be stoned according to the Law of Moses. Jesus responds by challenging them, saying that whoever is without sin should cast the first stone. One by one, the accusers leave, and Jesus forgives the woman, instructing her to go and sin no more.

Later, Jesus delivers profound teachings about his identity, proclaiming that he is the light of the world. He declares that those who follow him will have the light of life. This sparks a heated debate between Jesus and the Pharisees, with Jesus revealing their spiritual blindness and asserting his authority as the Son of God.

John chapter 8 showcases Jesus' wisdom, compassion, and divine authority. It emphasizes the importance of forgiveness, the confrontation of religious hypocrisy, and the revelation of Jesus as the light of the world and the eternal Son of God.

A story of forgiveness
Review by Laura
This is the retelling of the adulterous woman what the Pharisees brought to Jesus. It is told in a very simple way that is very easy for little kids to understand. There is no mention of the sin this woman committed or the punishment. Instead the focus is on how Jesus made everyone aware that we are all sinners that deserve grace & mercy. It concludes with the gospel. The last page is a glossary of a few words that kids may need deeper understanding of. This is another great addition to this series of books.
Great for reading practice and starting gospel conversations with children
Review by JoyfulMommy
Not only is this a wonderful little book with a powerful message, it also provides great reading practice. My early readers enjoy reading some of the pages when we are reading this aloud together and though they need help with some of the words, many of them are sight words or easily sounded out phonetically. It’s also easy and enjoyable for my third grader (and up) to read to younger siblings, and easy for them to follow and understand.

This book uses the story of the “woman who had broken God’s law” (John 8 - no details about the sin or proposed punishment) to show how Jesus loves and rescues sinners, even though they deserve punishment. Whether we live in obvious sin like the woman in the story or live an outwardly religious life like the Pharisees, we all deserve punishment for breaking God’s Law and need Jesus to rescue us! He did just that by dying on the cross to pay for our sin, then rising from the dead defeating sin and death forever. We can trust Him to rescue us!

The “about the author” page is neat as it tells a little bit about John and how you can read his other true stories about Jesus in the Gospel of John in the Bible. (My children love that part and never want me to skip it!) There’s also a basic glossary with a few words at the end. I’m thankful for this addition to our library.
Love & Forgiveness
Review by Becky V.
This is an excellent book for children that retells the true story of the woman who was caught in sin by religious leaders and brought to Jesus, and how he challenged them that whoever was without sin could cast the first stone at her. It is a story of forgiveness and love. It goes on to explain how Jesus steps in and rescues each of us by taking our punishment.

We love these books. They are fun to read and the pictures are amazing, but also so telling of the truth!
