"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (v12). Jesus didn’t condemn the woman caught in adultery, nor did he leave her in darkness. His command was to “go and sin no more.” He came to save humanity from the darkness of sin and evil and to welcome us into his kingdom of light. Jesus warned the Pharisees that if chose to stay in darkness that they would “die in their sins” (v24).”
“You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (v32). When we recognize the truth about ourselves and our need for Jesus, the result is not condemnation, but freedom.
