"The story of the adulterous woman is taken from St. John’s Gospel in the New Testament. In the biblical text, a woman caught in the act of adultery has been brought to the Temple to be judged… Holding the hand of the accused, Jesus is seen here declaring to the scribes and Pharisees around him: ‘He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.’ The figure representing Jesus bears the tell-tale physical traits of one of Cranach’s northern German countrymen." - National Gallery of Canada
