Comment KJV citations in Fuschia 

1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.   (KJV)                         

1)    Then Jesus - Yeshua  passed through and went into the 
       Mount of Olives.  

And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.    (KJV) 

2)   Then returning back again at dawn's daybreak,
       He arrived and came into the Temple,
       and all the people - and all the nation
       came forth publicly up alongside with Him;
       and sitting down,   He taught - instructed them.

[My Comment: The nation of Israel gathered from about 2,700,200 (Josephus, Wars of the Jews, 6.9.3) to that in excess of 3,000,000 in and around Jerusalem during the high holidays.  In contrast, the Courts of the Gentiles of the Temple Mount area in and of itself, regularly held about 30,000 to 50,000 during the 7 high holidays listed in Leviticus 23, and possibly as well during Channukah, but only during daylight hours.   

It is extremely likely that Jesus instructed from Solomon's Porch, just south of the Eastern Gate, as indicated in Ezekiel's Prophecy for the Messiah to do (Ezekiel 44:1-3) which Porch and area of the Temple 11 of the 12 Disciples of Jesus specifically returned to and in imitation of Jesus taught from, after receiving the Holy Spirit following Jesus' ascension into Heaven. ]                     

And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,    (KJV)            

3)   Then the scribes and Pharisees
       remove - carry - bring - lead a woman
       having eagerly and strenuously been laid hold upon
       and seized in (the very act of) adultery.

       And standing - setting her (in place)
       in (the) middle of (their) midst,

[My Comment:  It appears that whenever we have a group of the "scribes and Pharisees" or of such confronting Jesus, it is a legal body able to judge and pass sentence that is doing so.  They are ALWAYS therefore comprised of at least 3 legal judges or in this case, an entire body of the Sanhedrin Katan, 23 members of the Great Sanhedrin of 70 gathered for the purpose of a quorum of a Lesser Sanhedrin, able to pass the sentence of death upon anyone of their nation (any who are of the tribes of Israel) but for a Roman citizen or under the protection of Rome in a legal capacity such as an administrator of the Romans or an appointed civil servant of Rome.  It is because they ARE the legal body, Jesus accepts their appointing Him judge in this matter in verse 5 (below), rather than deferring them (cf. His response in verse 6) to the Sanhedrin Katan to judge, because they ARE the Sanhedrin Katan.]             

They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.    (KJV)               

4)   They lay down definite words and say to Him,
          'Teacher - Instructor,  
           this woman has been eagerly and strenuously 
           laid hold upon and seized in the very act of 
           [thrusting] upon himself,
           in (the act of) theft committing adultery.

Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?    (KJV)                     

5)   In then, the Law,
       Moses to us obligated as a demand to be fulfilled
       such as this (sort) to be stoned.

[My Comment:  

Leviticus 20:10
     And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. (KJV)

Deuteronomy 22:22 

    If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.  (KJV)

You will notice that there is NO man, likely one of the scribes, presented; the one who was in the very act of thrusting with the woman when she was laid hold upon and taken away.  The scribes and Pharisees intentionally BROKE the Law of Moses and were demanding Jesus consent and authorize murder in defiance to GOD, the sanctity of the Temple Mount, the sacred Laws and Customs given them through Moses, and to cast down and trample Justice under the sandal consenting to their evil obsession with the world system they operated in, demanding themselves to be elites above the Law of Moses and GOD in judgement and in operation,  in contradiction and spitefully over that of the lives of several million Israelites who they demanded follow the rules they refused to be fully subject to.]

       You, therefore, what definite words do you 
       lay down and say?'

This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.    (KJV)   

6)    This then, they definitely said,
        testing Him by adversity and with ill intent 
        (to tempt Him to sin),
        in order that 
        they may have - hold - possess and continue to possess        
        [the power]  to speak down upon
        to accuse and condemn     Him.

        Then Jesus - Yeshua, bowing the head and stooping down,
         perhaps not (with) cause to make - do - bring about
         up alongside with (them),
         with the finger wrote into the Earth [wrote into the dirt].

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.    (KJV)      

7)   Then as they stayed and remained upon - as they continued
       inquiring - questioning - asking - interrogating    Him,
       bending back (up) again,
       He said up alongside with them,
            'He of you without sin,
             let him first     cast - throw
             the stone upon her.'

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.    (KJV)   

8)    And again, bowing the head and stooping down,
        He wrote into the Earth.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.    (KJV)     

9)   Then they, having listened intently and heard,
       also under the conscience 
       convicted (as being) in the wrong and shamed,
       went forth out one by one,
       beginning from the Presbyters / Elders
       until the very last.

       And Jesus and the woman standing in (the) 
       middle of the midst
       were abandoned - forsaken - left alone.

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?   (KJV)        

10)   Then Jesus, bending back again - raising back up,
         and not even one attentively observing nor deliberately
         watching with contemplation
         more than (just besides - other than) the woman,
         He said to her,
               'Woman, where are those ones there?

        [The accusers had all left and disappeared out of sight into 
          the multitudes.  The accusers no longer be any more present,
          the Greek word "ekeinoi" which is "those ones there" 
          can ONLY  mean that Jesus - Yeshua 
          is pointing to the very names of each and 
          every one of the 23 of the Sanhedrin Katan that provoked Jesus,
          from the most senior to the most junior in the exact correct order.
          Jesus therefore either wrote the word SHeQaR, 
          the Hebrew word for Falsehood 
          and then the names underneath; or  it is perhaps that He wrote
          the  Commandment He, in His pre-incarnate state as YHVeH, 
          gave Moses, when He said to Moses and all Israel in 1551 B.C.,  
                "Thou shalt not bear false witness
                 against thy neighbor."   (Exodus 20:16 - KJV)

          Therefore, in this verse, Jesus - Yeshua is obviously pointing to
          the names of those He had written 
          in the Earth as He in His pre-incarnate state so directed in 
         Jeremiah 17:13 (cited in the KJV below) 

          O Lord, the hope of Israel,
          all that forsake thee shall be ashamed,
          and they that depart from Me
          shall be written in the earth,
          because they have forsaken the Lord,
          the fountain of living waters. ]

                  The speakers against - 
                  The condemning speakers -
                  The accusers                          of you.  

                   Not even one judged against you -
                   Not even one condemned you?'      

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.    (KJV)                      

11)   Then she said, 
               'Not  even one, Lord.'

        Then Jesus - Yeshua said to her,
               'Certainly not then, 
                   do I judge against - do I condemn       you.

                Go and pass through  [the crowds here at the Temple]
                and sin perhaps no more - and sin perhaps not anymore
                [as if this never happened and will never happen again].'
