Who is without sin be the first to throw a stone

October 2025 - "Who is without sin be the first to throw a stone"

Jesus forgives a Woman in adultery (John 8:1-11)

but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them.  The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group  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?”  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. 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.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

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.  Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

“No one, sir,” she said.

“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

"My wife Diane and I had the opportunity to be a part of John Zamudio's painting "Welcome Home". We were very excited to do this as we are both big fans of John's works. We sent John a few photographs of us together. We had a rough idea of what the painting would be, but neither of understood the impact we would feel as we opened the shipment of the finished print and saw ourselves depicted in such a beautiful setting, standing next to the Savior. It was humbling to imagine what it must really be like to stand next to Jesus Christ. John's painting carried such a spiritual feeling...so much so that we chose to place the painting in our bedroom as a reminder that we are on a constant quest to be close to the Savior. Thank you, John, for your amazing talents that brings so much passion for Christ to the rest of the world." Garth Smith - LDS Pianist - www.garthsmithmusic.com

When the idea of being in a painting with Christ was presented to me, I was overjoyed! You see paintings of Him all the time and often don't know anyone else in them, to be able to be those people there with Him was an amazing thought! So, we (my husband and I ) talked about it, and thought what an amazing treasure it would be in our home to have. John was great to work with and communicated all the details very well. We are more than pleased with the end result, the details and the colors in our painting are phenomenal. We have it as the center of our home and will cherish it forever. Everyone who comes in and sees it asks how we did it! I am so grateful to John and his amazing talent for bringing this into our lives. Thank you! .. Jessica Drew. Utah  (Painting In Xpuhil)
