    Jesus said that whoever among those men had not sinned could throw the stone. But he did not include himself in the game, because throwing the stone at the woman is not appropriate.

    And another thing: Mary Magdalene is not the adulterous woman in the Bible. The adulterous woman is unknown. Mary Magdalene was the woman who wept at Jesus' feet and dried with her hair and perfumed him. That is Mary Magdalene.

    Mary Magdalene was not the woman taken in adultery.  (I notice that they didn't bring the man for justice.)

    He didn't want to stone her to death, silly.  That's why he didn't throw a stone.  Besides, authority over life and death belonged to Rome, not to the local council.

    He didn't come to condemn and punish. He came to save people.

    Jesus is too good, gentle and kind to do that.

    Luke 9

    51And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, 52And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. 53And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. 54And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? 55But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

    Jesus was sweet on Mary Magdalene she may have been his wife. He told her not to touch him before she ask if she could (John 20:16-17) suggesting an intermate relationship.

    The point was that Jesus was not there to enforce a death-penalty law, which the woman's accusers had ignored anyway.  She was taken "in the act", but where was the man?  It was an attempted trap.

    A - You shouldn't get your Bible from movies. (Mary Magdalene was not the woman caught in adultery.)

    B - Because that would have been murder.

    The woman caught in adultery was not Mary Magdalene. And Jesus showed the woman mercy and kindness.

    He said this actually

    John 8:7 KJV — He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

    Stoning was an OT law. Jesus came to do away with the law and replace it with the grace of God. So he forgave the woman.
