John 8:12 ESV,
I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
Frequently, the first 11 verses of John 8 are examined apart from verse 12. Despite the fact that the first 11 verses clearly depict Jesus as the light of the world. He is the light in this dark world, the world that was about to go a lot darker for this woman who had committed adultery. Yes, this woman was in a situation where she knew she would soon die because she would never be able to escape again due to her transgression against Jewish law. Cruel, indeed.
