Pastor Brad Holmes discussed John’s story of Jesus’s encounter with a woman caught in a delicate and broken situation. As a group, name his main points.
Which point stood out to you the most? Why?
The religious leaders try to trap Jesus with a question that has no easy answer. What situations in our world seem impossible with no easy answers?

What does Jesus’s one-on-one encounter with the woman reveal about God’s heart for us in our sin and shame?
How have you experienced God’s compassion and forgiveness in your brokenness?
Jesus restores the woman and then challenges her to go and live differently. Where is Jesus challenging you to live differently and follow him?
What is one step you can take toward Jesus this week in that area? Consider sharing with your group and committing to pray for each other.
