John 8:3

The scribes and the Pharisees (oi grammateiv kai oi Parisaioi).
John does not mention "scribes," though this combination (note two articles) is common enough in the Synoptics (Luke 5:30; 6:7, etc.).

Bring (agousin).
Vivid dramatic present active indicative of agw. Dods calls this "in itself an unlawful thing to do" since they had a court for the trial of such a case. Their purpose is to entrap Jesus.

Taken in adultery (epi moixeiai kateilemmenhn).
Perfect passive participle of katalambanw, old compound to seize (Mark 9:18), to catch, to overtake (John 12:35), to overcome (or overtake) in 1:5.

Having set her in the midst (sthsantev authn en meswi).
First aorist active (transitive) participle of isthmi. Here all could see her and what Jesus did with such a case. They knew his proneness to forgive sinners.
