Despite the authenticity controversy concerning verses 1-11, I would like to examine it in detail to grasp a better understanding of how to refute many who attempt to use this as proof a "change has occurred". 

1) We know the woman accused of adultery had "sinned". 

2) We also know her accusers brought her to Yeshua to "tempt" (KJV), "trying" (ISR), "testing" (HRV) Him

3) He accused all those gathered of having sinned in the past.

In what manner were they "trying" Him? I think it was in His knowledge of what He had previously written and what He again wrote on the ground in their presence which is found here:

Deu 19:15  “One witness does not rise up against a man concerning any crookedness or any sin that he commits. At the mouth of two witnesses or at the mouth of three witnesses a matter is established. 

Why would Yeshua have used their past sins as a tool to convict them of their error and not Deu 19:15? Is this proof of John 8:1-11 not being inspired?

A close friend of mine attempted to use this situation as "proof" a "change has occurred".

Shalom Adonai brother, I would like to point out a possible solution to this problem so commonly addressed, both between us and the goyim. Is Yeshua partial? or is it full? Fair or unfair? When they bring to Yeshua an adulterous woman, they try him first, because they bring him to him and not the high priest and the judges of the time, as it is written in De 19. Yeshua had not yet made his sacrifice for us, so he had not been appointed as high priest (Hebrews 5), in sequence, they brought only the woman who was caught up in the act and the man was released, as it is written in Vayikra 20.10, the two must be presented to be judged and after the verification of the veracity of the situation the death sentence. However, Yeshua in his divine wisdom only pointed out, "he that is without sin cast the first stone," his brilliant answer was a future prophecy that said that the high priesthood would belong to a man without sin and yet as an act of mercy to her, the woman who was the smallest sinner among those who accused her (because she was being led by hypocritical blind guides), "I also do not condemn you" at the first word was mercy, but then an order of condemnation, "... and sin no more", where it is clear that Yeshua does not support the transgression of the Torah. I hope I have helped at some point. Adonai bless us!

Why would Yeshua have used their past sins as a tool to convict them of their error

--because Yeshua was not interested to deliver judgment to the sinner. aware that He came to save the sinner not to judge, though promised to return to judge every one

--because Yeshua knows that capital punishment CANNOT BE meted out from decision of a single judge, save from appeal to the sanhedrin

--because Yeshua knows the exacting procedures observed under the law for admitting parole evidence in a capital case, which, in the given narration can only put him to embarrassment had he done otherwise
