Hmm, when oppositions request your view on a matter, how do you respond? In John 8:5, the accusers of the woman asked, “But what do You say?” They set a trap for Jesus. If Jesus said, “Let her go,” then He would seem to break the Law of Moses. If He said, “Execute her for the crime of adultery,” then Jesus would seem harsh and perhaps cruel. Also, He would break Roman law because the Romans had taken the right of official execution for religious offences away from the Jews. Similarly, this was a dilemma posed by the question to Jesus about paying taxes to Caesar (Matthew 22:15-22).
