"When you really know somebody, you cant hate them, or maybe its just that you cant really know them until you stop hating them. Once you understand what people really want, you cant hate them anymore. You can fear them, but you cant hate them, because you can always find the same desires in your own heart. The pharisees brought an adulterous woman caught in the act to Jesus to try and trap him using mosaic law. They already hated her thus they never understood her. Jesus both knew and understood her, thus he loved her regardless. In his infinite wisdom he shared this understanding and knowledge with the pharisees saying "he who is without sin cast the first stone". In that light the pharisees, even though they may never have acted on it, realized that they may have had similar desires to the adulterous woman. Thus in just one simple sentence, Jesus made the pharisees understand and know the adulterous woman enough to love her..thus stop hating her. And one by one, they dropped their stones and left.".
