AfterJesus anoints Aaron's eyes with clay, the news travels to Caiaphas,the high judge of Israel, that Jesus has healed a man on theSabbath‰ÛÓeven though no work is to be done on that day (according toJewish law).

Jesus turns aside Caiaphas' men, sayingthat they do not judge righteously.On the street we see Aaron, a poor blind beggar.åÊ As two men pass him, one expresses the belief that Aaron‰۪s blindness is a punishment from God for his sins or the sins of his parents.åÊ Aaron is convinced in his heart and souls that Jesus can heal him, but he cannot find Him.åÊ His good parents set off to try to find Jesus.Caiaphas, the high judge of Israel, considers himself to be enormously wise ‰ÛÒ wiser than Solomon.åÊ He sentences a woman, who has been disloyal to her husband, to be stoned to death.åÊ News comes that Jesus has healed a man on the Sabbath even though, according to Jewish law, no work is to be done on the Sabbath.åÊ Caiaphas angrily sends men to arrest Jesus and they find Him teaching in the temple.åÊ He turns aside Caiaphas‰۪ men, saying they do not judge righteously.åÊ Caiaphas and his men then plot to trick Jesus.åÊ They bring the condemned woman to Jesus and ask Him to judge her.åÊ If He frees her, He is breaking the law of Moses; to sentence her to be stoned is to break Roman law.åÊ Jesus says, ‰ÛÏLet him who has no sin cast the first stone.‰۝åÊ The members of the mob who gathered to punish her drop their stones to the pavement and disperse.åÊ Jesus tells the woman, ‰ÛÏGo, and sin no more.‰۝When Aaron finds Jesus, Jesus anoints his eyes with clay and tells him to wash in the pool of Siloam.åÊ Aaron does so and his blindness is cured.åÊ Caiaphas questions Aaron, who replies that he was healed by Jesus.åÊ Caiaphas now knows that Jesus is a greater judge than he.Background:What is the meaning of suffering?åÊ Is it a punishment by God?åÊ Who is qualified to judge and by what standards?åÊ Jesus tells us that as all men are sinners, God alone can judge us.åÊ He does so righteously, with His eternal wisdom and love.In The Righteous Judge, Jesus demonstrates God‰۪såÊ wondrous mercy.åÊ None of us could throw the first stone because we are all guilty of sin.åÊ But Jesus invites each of us to experience His forgiveness and then says, ‰ÛÏGo and sin no more.‰۝BONUS Resource & Activity BooksEach interactive DVD includes a 64-page Resource & Activity Book full of skill-developing activities, word games, puzzles, coloring pages, and more!
