The judgment (Jn 8:15-8:15)

“You judge

according to the flesh,

By human standards.

I judge no one.”

ὑμεῖς κατὰ τὴν σάρκα κρίνετε, ἐγὼ οὐ κρίνω οὐδένα.

John uniquely indicated that Jesus said to the Pharisees that they judge according to the flesh (ὑμεῖς κατὰ τὴν σάρκα κρίνετε), by human standards.  However, Jesus was not going to judge anyone (ἐγὼ οὐ κρίνω οὐδένα).  The flesh, σάρκα, was the human way of doing things, with human standards, limited human reason, or based on human appearances.  Jesus, on the other hand, did not judge people.  He had a divine standard.  Are you too judgmental?
