 Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.  Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them.  The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst  they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery.  Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?”  This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground.  And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”  And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground.  But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him.  Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”  She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”
John 8:1–11 ESV
Jesus, who of all of the people there was able to condemn, didn’t condemn this woman. In John 3:17 He said He didn’t come to condemn the world but to save it. His purpose wasn’t to condemn but to set us free.
At the same time, He didn’t call a wrong thing right. He called her out of her sin and into a new life free from sin. He showed that it is possible to be honest about the evil of sin while being loving and gracious toward a person. Jesus could lead with love and mercy, but be honest about what sin is.
