John 8:4-5

Context
8:4 and said to Jesus, 1  “Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of adultery. 8:5 In the law Moses commanded us to stone to death 2  such women. 3  What then do you say?”

1 tn Grk “to him”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 sn An allusion to Lev 20:10 and Deut 22:22-24.

3 sn The accusers themselves subtly misrepresented the law. The Mosaic law stated that in the case of adultery, both the man and woman must be put to death (Lev 20:10, Deut 22:22), but they mentioned only such women.
