Sunday Mass: Fifth Sunday Of Lent – March 13, 2016

Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
But early in the morning he arrived again in the temple area,
and all the people started coming to him,
and he sat down and taught them.
Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman
who had been caught in adultery
and made her stand in the middle.
They said to him,
“Teacher, this woman was caught
in the very act of committing adultery.
Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women.
So what do you say?”
They said this to test him,
so that they could have some charge to bring against him.
Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with his finger.
But when they continued asking him,
he straightened up and said to them,
“Let the one among you who is without sin
be the first to throw a stone at her.”
Again he bent down and wrote on the ground.
And in response, they went away one by one,
beginning with the elders.
So he was left alone with the woman before him.
Then Jesus straightened up and said to her,
“Woman, where are they?
Has no one condemned you?”
She replied, “No one, sir.”
Then Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you.
Go, and from now on do not sin any more.”

Today’s Gospel tells us about the teachings in the Old Testament vs. the teachings of the New Testament. One of the Laws of God in the Old Testament between God and Moses was stated in the book of Leviticus 20:10 (LEVITICUS IS A BOOK WRITTEN BY MOSES) “If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife–with the wife of his neighbor–both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death.” But in the New Testament, God the Son, who is Jesus Christ never condemned the woman who committed adultery because God in the New Testament is a loving God, a forgiving God. The Words of God through the mouth and hands of Moses in the Old Testament became Flesh in the New Testament by becoming a man to personally deliver His words and teachings for our Salvation. http://usapangpinas.com/sunday-mass-fifth-sunday-of-lent-m…/
