Christ and the Sinner Caught in Adultery – Tiepolo

The Pharisees bring a woman, caught in adultery, to Our Lord, Who is sitting in the Temple teaching. The traditional form of punishment for this would be stoning to death. With an example of great mercy for all, Christ protects the sinner, saying, "Let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!" Artwork by G. Tiepolo.
