Television is full of “drama mamas,” whether reality TV stars or celebrities who always seem to be in trouble in the tabloids. (This is not to say that there are not men with drama, but the focus of today’s message is drama among women because our Bible passage is about a woman caught in sin.)
As Jesus speaks and lives out His ministry, He ignites controversy wherever He goes. Though the common people were very glad to hear Him, the authoritative religious leaders of the day did not want to be challenged or to submit to the authority of Jesus. Therefore, they constantly sought to catch Him in a lie to accuse, arrest, and have Him killed.
