New Testament

John Chapter 8

   

They brought a woman taken in adultery
To see if, to stoning her, Jesus would agree,
But He said "let him without sin cast the first stone!"
And her accusers, convicted, left one by one.
When Jesus then looked round and saw what was the score,
He said "Neither do I condemn: go, sin no more".
"I'm the light of the world" He told the Pharisees,
I and my Father bear witness, Him I seek to please."
They did not grasp He spake to them of the Father,
But He told them theirs was the devil, none other!
"Abraham," he added, "saw my day, rejoicing...
Before Abraham was, I am!" They nigh killed Him!
