The story of the woman taken in adultery features a dramatic confrontation between Jesus and the Pharisees over whether the adulteress should be stoned as the law commands. In response, Jesus famously states, Let him who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her. To Cast the First Stone traces the history of this provocative story from its first appearance to its enduring presence today. Likely added to the Gospel of John in the third century, the passage is often held up by modern critics as an example of textual corruption by early Christian scribes and editors, yet a judgment of corruption obscures the warm embrace the story actually received. Jennifer Knust and Tommy Wasserman trace the storys incorporation into Gospel books, liturgical practices, storytelling, and art, overturning the mistaken perception that it was either peripheral or suppressed, even in the Greek East. The authors also explore the storys many different meanings. Taken as an illustration of the expansiveness of Christs mercy, the purported superiority of Christians over Jews, the necessity of penance, and more, this vivid episode has invited any number of creative receptions. This history reveals as much about the changing priorities of audiences, scribes, editors, and scholars as it does about an original text of John. To Cast the First Stone calls attention to significant shifts in Christian book cultures and the enduring impact of oral tradition on the preservationand destabilizationof scripture.

"[A] splendid and exhaustive examination... [w]ith scrupulous attention to every scrap of extant evidence." * Commonweal Magazine * "This is a careful and rich study. More than that, it illustrates the impressive results that can be gained by adopting a longitudinal approach to the manuscript data and other evidence surrounded an individual pericope. All who read this volume will not only gain insight into the pericope adulterae, more significantly they will learn much about the best practices in the study of the gospels themselves."---Paul Foster, Journal for the Study of the New Testament "The work will clearly be the definitive treatment of the history of what came to be an influential part of the Fourth Gospel, showing that what has counted as 'Scripture' is not necessarily 'original.'"---Harold Attridge, Journal of Religious History "This beautifully produced, clearly written, and carefully edited volume will clearly be the definitive treatment of the history of what came to be an influential part of the Fourth Gospel, showing that what has counted as Scripture is not necessarily original.Harold W. Attridge, Journal of Religious History "
