The woman caught in adultery in John chapter 8

I have always loved the story in John chapter 8:1-11.
It tells of a woman caught in adultery brought to Jesus for judegement. It was actually a test or trap for Jesus set by the pharisees, but it backfired on them.
Real Live Preacher has dramatised ths story in two parts. Part 1 and Part 2
He makes it very poignant and real.
To me this story tells me that God is the only Judge that matters, not man as we are all sinners.
In this case Jesus forgives the woman, and instructs her to go and change her life.
We are all given that opportunity, but not always do we choose to take it.
