The Testimony of Jesus Christ
In John 8:7 we read about the woman caught in adultery. Jesus say’s to her accusers “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” After they drop their stones and walk away( and thereby admitting that they had sin), Jesus looks at the woman and asks, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” After she states that no one accused her, Jesus makes a remarkable statement. “Then neither do I condemn you.” What is Jesus saying? He is saying that He and He alone was the only one that could condemn her because He was the only one without sin.
In John 8:29 Jesus has this to say regarding Himself.
“The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him.”
Think about that for a minute….what did it take to always please God? Obedience to every single law and rule that God had handed down; that’s what it would take and yet Jesus did just that!
At the start of this section we looked at this scripture, but I want us to consider its context.
“46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me?” This dialog (and all that leads up to it) is in the same chapter as the woman who was caught in adultery. So Jesus asks this after publicly proving that he had no sin by choosing not to condemn the woman.
Jesus later testifies that even Satan himself had nothing to accuse Jesus of because there was no sin in Him. John 14:30
30 “I will not speak much more with you, for the ruler of the world is coming, and he has nothing in Me;
It is clear that Jesus himself knew he was sinless and testified of it. He was not afraid to do so because no one could accuse Him of any wrong doing or sin. He even declared that Satan himself could find no sin. Even the minions of the devil cried out in testimony to Jesus’ sinless nature.
