John 8:5–11
5 מֹשֶׁה צִוָּנוּ בַּתּוֹרָה לִסְקֹל נָשִׁים כָּאֵלֶּה, (ויקרא כ׳ י׳//דברים כב׳ כב׳) וּמָה אַתָּה אוֹמֵר?״ 6 זֹאת אָמְרוּ כְּדֵי לְנַסּוֹת אוֹתוֹ, שֶׁיִּהְיֶה לָהֶם בְּמַה לְּהַאֲשִׁימוֹ. אוּלָם יֵשׁוּעַ הִתְכּוֹפֵף וּבְאֶצְבָּעוֹ כָּתַב עַל הָאָרֶץ. (ירמיהו יז׳ יג׳) 7 כְּשֶׁהוֹסִיפוּ לִשְׁאֹל אוֹתוֹ, זָקַף קוֹמָתוֹ וְאָמַר׃ ״מִי מִכֶּם נָקִי מְחֵטְא, שֶׁיְּהֵא הוּא רִאשׁוֹן לְהַשְׁלִיךְ עָלֶיהָ אֶבֶן!״ 8 וְשׁוּב הִתְכּוֹפֵף וְכָתַב עַל הָאָרֶץ. 9 כְּשָׁמְעָם זֹאת יָצְאוּ אֶחָד אֶחָד, הָחֵל מֵהַזְּקֵנִים. הוּא נוֹתַר לְבַדּוֹ וְהָאִשָּׁה עוֹדֶנָּה בִּמְקוֹמָהּ. 10 הִזְדַּקֵּף יֵשׁוּעַ וְאָמַר לָהּ׃ ״אִשָּׁה, אֵיפֹה הֵם? הַאִם לֹא הִרְשִׁיעַ אוֹתָךְ אִישׁ?״ 11 הֵשִׁיבָה וְאָמְרָה׃ ״אַף לֹא אֶחָד, אֲדוֹנִי.״ אָמַר לָהּ׃ ״גַּם אֲנִי אֵינֶנִּי מַרְשִׁיעַ אוֹתָךְ; לְכִי וְאַל תּוֹסִיפִי לַחֲטֹא עוֹד.״שׁ

John 8:5–12
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. (KJV)

Here in John 8:5-12 Yeshua used the Torah command that an adulterer should be stoned (Vayikra / Leviticus 20:10) to teach an import point about sin. He said he who has no sin may cast the first stone. The point is we are all guilty having violated the Torah in some way, and how mercy is better than killing.…

Dr. Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned.
