The Woman Taken in Adultery - Rembrandt

We have been led to believe, with the massive help of the complicit media, that the ancient law of stoning, which takes places in places like Saudi Arabia, is an Islamic practice.


A recent visit to the National Gallery and their Rembrandt exhibition led me to this painting:

...and in the description under the picture was written: "stoning - ancient law of the Hebrews".

Reading up a bit further, I find this phrase in the explanation of the picture:

'Rembrandt made Jesus appear taller than the other figures and more brightly lit. In contrast, the Jews are "in the dark" and appear lower. Symbolically, Jesus's height represents his moral superiority over those who attempted to trick him.'


So there you have it: stoning is an ancient HEBREW practice.

Just wanted to make that clear.
