O MY FATHER—86
The Woman Taken in Adultery (John 8:1-11)
 Read these verses and come up with three questions that
you can ask your neighbor about this story.
Woman Taken in Adultery—A Happy Ending
“…And the woman glorified
God from that hour, and believed
on his name” (Inspired Version,
John 8:11).
“If Jesus were to stand by
and be asked to judge those whom
we accuse and should say to us, ‘He
that is without sin among you, let
him first cast a stone at her,’ and
then should stoop and write in the
sand, how many of us would feel to
steal away ashamed, convicted in
our own conscience? How sound is
his counsel!" (N. Eldon Tanner, CR,
Apr. 1972, p. 57.)
Who’s Your Daddy?
Name everybody that you can think of that you can
possibly call “father”.
Who’s Your Daddy? (John 8:18-19, 27-29, 33, 3859)
 Who are the five fathers spoken of directly or
indirectly in this discussion between Christ and the
Pharisees?
 According to the Savior, what is the ultimate
paternity test? What verse contains the paternity
test?
 What did Jesus teach them that it takes to have God
as your father?
 What did He say that really ticked the Jews off?

 According to the Savior, what is the ultimate
paternity test? What verse contains the paternity

 Jesus established that God is His Father because He

John 8
“The Scriptures inform us that Jesus said, As the
Father hath power in Himself, even so hath the Son
power—to do what? Why, what the Father did. The answer
is obvious—in a manner to lay down His body and take it
up again. Jesus, what are you going to do? To lay down my
life as my Father did, and take it up again. Do we believe it?
If you do not believe it, you do not believe the Bible. The
Scriptures say it, and I defy all the learning and wisdom
and all the combined powers of earth and hell together to
refute it” (Joseph Smith, TPJS, 346).
John 8
Back to the original question: Whom can you call
‘father’ (who’s your daddy) in light of the truth
taught by the Savior “ye do the deeds of your father”
(41)?
