c. 8:3-4 SCRIBES AND PHARISEES CONFRONT JESUS WITH A WOMAN OF ADULTERY

And the scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman taken in sin;
kai STEsan-tes auTEN en MEso, LEgou-sin auTO, DiDAska-le,
and having set her in the midst, 4 they say to him, Teacher,
HAUtehe guNEkaTEIlep-tai au-toPHOromoi-cheu-oMEne.
this :woman has been taken in adultery, in the very act.
d. 8:5 Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone :such: what then do YOU say?
en de toNOmo heMIN Mo-uSES e-neTEIla-to tas toiAUtas liTHAzein : su oun ti LEgeis?
e. 8:6a And this they said, trying him, that they might have from it something to accuse him.
TOUto de Ele-gon, peiRAzon-tes  auTON, HIna Echo-sin ka-te-goREIN auTOU.

And they, when they heard it, went out one by one,
arXAme-noi aPO ton pres-buTEron : kai ka-teLEIPHthe  MOnos, kai he guNE, en MEso OUsa.
beginning from the elders: and he was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the midst.
j. 8:10 And :Jesus lifted himself up, andsaid to her, Woman, where are they? did no one condemn you?
a-naKUpsas de ho 'IeSOUS, EIpen auTE, GUnai, pou EIsin? ouDEIS se kaTEkri-nen ?
k. 8:11a And she said, No one, Lord. hede EIpen, OuDEIS, KUri-e.

EIpen de ho IeSOUS, OuDE eGO se ka-taKRIno : poREUou; aPO tou nun meKEti  haMARta-ne.
E. 8:12-20 FATHER WHO WITNESSES OF JESUS - UNKNOWN TO JEWS
a. 8:12 CHRIST THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
PAlin oun auTOIS eLAle-sen ho IeSOUS, LEgon, E-GO ei-mi to phos  tou KOSmou :
Again therefore :Jesus spoke to them, saying, I am the light of the world:
ho a-ko-louTHON  moi ou me pe-ri-paTEse en te skoTIa , all' HExei to phos tes zo-ES.
who follows me shall in no wise walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of :life.
b. 8:13 The Pharisees therefore said to him, YOU are witnessing of yourself; your :witness is not true.
EIpon oun auTO hoi Pha-riSAIoi, Su peRI se-auTOU mar-tuREIS; he mar-tuRIa sou ouk EStin a-leTHES.
c. 8:14 JESUS JUSTIFIES HIS WORDS
a-peKRIthe IeSOUS kai EIpen auTOIS,
Jesus answered and said to them,
Ka' 'n eGO mar-tuRO peRI e-mauTOU, a-leTHES es-tin he mar-tuRIa mou;
And even if I am witnessing of myself, my :witness is true;
HOti OIda POthen ELthon, kai pou huPAgo; huMEIS de ouk OIda-te POthen ERcho-mai, e pou huPAgo.
for I know from where I came, and where I go; but YOU do not know from where I come, or where I go.
d. 8:15 YOU judge after the flesh; I judge no one.
huMEIS kaTA ten SARka KRIne-te; eGO ou KRIno ouDEna.
e. 8:16 AN INTERESTING INSIGHT
kai eAN KRIno de eGO, he KRIsis he eME a-le-thiNE es-tin;
Yes and if I judge, :my :judgment is true;
HOti MOnos ouk eiMI, all' eGO kai ho PEMpsas me paTER.
for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
f. 8:17 Yes and in :your :law it is written, that the witness of two men is true.
kai en to NOmo de to hu-meTEro GEgrap-tai, HOti DUo anTHROpon he mar-tuRIa a-leTHES es-tin.
g. 8:18 I am he that witnesses of myself, and the Father that sent me witnesses of me.
eGO ei-mi ho mar-tuRON peRI e-mauTOU, kai mar-tuREI peRI eMOU ho PEMpsas  me paTER.
h. 8:19a They said therefore to him, Where is your :Father?
Ele-gon oun auTO, POU es-tin ho paTER sou?
i. 8:19b JESUS REVEALS DEEP IGNORANCE OF THE PHARISEES
a-peKRIthe IeSOUS, OUte eME OIda-te , OUte ton paTERra mou:
Jesus answered, You know neither me, nor my :Father:
ei eME Edei-te, kai ton paTEra mou an Edei-te .
if you knew me, you would know my :Father also.
j. 8:20 THE IMPORTANCE OF “KAIROS” TIME
TAUta ta 'REma-ta  eLAle-sen en to ga-zo-phu-laKIo , diDAskon en to hi-eRO:
These :words spoke he in the treasury, while teaching in the temple:
kai ouDEIS ePIa-sen  auTON; HOti OUpo e-leLUthei  he HOra auTOU.
and no one took him; because his :hour was not yet come.
NOTE: 7:53-8:11 - Next to Mark 16:9-20, this passage is one of the most disputed by the Textual Critics. Like the passage in Mark, it is often omitted from the text in various translations - or otherwise attended with a note stating its lack of authenticity.
However, according to God's “Bible Numerics”, this passage is indeed an integral portion of the New Testament! Dr. Ivan Panin has done yeoman's duty since his discovery of God's Bible Numerics in 1890. He has spent 50 years of 100,000 hours producing a complete NT Greek text with noalternate readings, and made an English translation of this text. This latter also contains the Numeric sentence structure, subdivisions, paragraphs and sections (chapter equivalents) according to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit who inspired the 8 NT writers.
I have placed an 8 word or less summary for each sentence, and gathered these up into the higher divisions. These latter are notinspired - therefore I have left a space above each for you to replace them with your own summary should you see fit.
Sometimes, Bible Numerics agree with the Textual Critics. For instance, the ending of the Lord's prayer given to His disciples at their request, reads “For thine is the Kingdom, etc;” Bible Numerics agree that this verse is a copyist's addition, and does not rightly belong to the original texts. The truth is there, but in other portions.
On another occasion, Jesus is quoted as saying concerning the casting our of demons, “This kind comes not out except through prayer and fasting.” “And fasting” is an eager-beaver copyist's addition, and does not rightly belong in the text here. The teaching on “fasting” is not in any way jeopardized by this correction, for it appears in many other places in both the Old as well as the New Testament.
So - John 7:53-8:11 can be prayed over and meditated upon with fullconfidence, as well as Mark 16:9-20. One could dare say that Satan would be most happy to see both these portions omitted! The lessons contained in them are both important and significant. Note the divine wisdom of Jesus turned on the woman's persecutors, that sent them allleaving the field to Him.
John 8:12-20 would have been sufficient for Jesus' accusers to take him into custody, had it not been for the Father's Sovereign choice in appointing the final hour for His Son's crucifixion. Does God do this quite often? Quite often! He isour Sovereign God, and He fully utilized His Sovereignty in the timing of allevents in the life of His only begotten Son. And for us as adopted sons? Yes, that same Sovereignty is manifested for us too! For instance, see in the life of the apostle Paul as rendered in Galatians 1:15-16a - “But when it was God's good pleasure who separated me from my mother's womb and called methrough his :grace, to reveal his :Son in me, that...” The conversion of Paul on the road to Damascus was all arranged by God! The Resurrected Jesus then appeared to him, and commissioned him with an extraordinary Gentile commission, to be accompanied with extraordinary suffering!
How the world hated Jesus, because He clearly and boldly witnessed against it, because its deeds were evil! And the OT prophets also boldly witnessed against Kings and Rulers when they transgressed the truth of God. Scarce a prophet did not die a death of violence because of his faithful declarations of truth. And today? Should not prophets arise under the Sovereignty of God to challenge the evil of rulers today? Is our time any different than the times of John the Baptist - who confronted King Herod for an illegal marriage? May God still raise up faithful witnesses to so speak for Him, even though it may mean death for them. J.A.W.
