How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

Death Penalty: Yes or No

John 8:1-11

My Sermon Notes from September 8, 2019 Full Text: John 8:1-11

1 於是各人都回家去了。耶穌卻往橄欖山去。 2 清早又回到殿裡,眾百
姓都到他那裡去,他就坐下教訓他們。 3 文士和法利賽人帶著一個行
淫時被拿的婦人來,叫她站在當中, 4 就對耶穌說:「夫子,這婦人
是正行淫之時被拿的。 5 摩西在律法上吩咐我們把這樣的婦人用石頭
打死,你說該把她怎麼樣呢?」 6 他們說這話乃試探耶穌,要得著告
他的把柄。耶穌卻彎著腰,用指頭在地上畫字。 7 他們還是不住地問
以先拿石頭打她。」8 於是又彎著腰,用指頭在地上畫字。9 他們聽見
婦人仍然站在當中。10 耶穌就直起腰來,對她說:「婦人,那些人在
哪裡呢?沒有人定你的罪嗎?」 11 她說:「主啊,沒有。」耶穌說:
1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts,
where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of
the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand
before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery.
In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They
were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent
down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him,
he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to
throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 At this, those who
heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the
woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are
they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn
you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
(約翰福音 John 8:1-11)
