The painting depicts a passage from Saint John's Gospel. The scribes and Pharisees bring a woman accused of adultery, and caught in the act, before Jesus. Jesus prevents the stoning that would be her punishment by urging the accusers to cast a stone if they have not sinned. Features such as the woman's headdress in the Franco-Flemish fashion, the folds in the cloth, and the use of color show that this piece is part of the Hispano-Flemish trend.
