The Gospel, according to John, Chapter 8, Verses 3-11, using the English Standard Version:
The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”

The barking, biting attitude that I saw earlier is one that I would expect to find on the Moobunny forums, but certainly not here, which is why it caught my eye so easily (I do not provide a link to that forum here, because I feel that the readers here can be spared the arrogant, disdainful, insulting attitudes with which the dominant handful so thoroughly pollute that forum; I remain there while I am allowed to because, although they prefer to keep their heads low---quite understandably, by the way---there are those there who do hear and do listen, and who do not deserve to be abandoned because of the hatefulness of others than themselves).

>[1]Christians generally call the Tanach the "Old Testament."

Jesus often referred to "the Law and the Prophets", which I have taken as meaning a part of the Old Testament, but I don't know the precise bounds that would be encompassed by that reference. Would it be the whole? If not, what are the boundaries of that reference?
