  Selected Opponents

A textual critic 'cites' a part of Origen's commentary that doesn't exist, to support his argument against John 8:1-11! In passing, he also dismisses internal evidence against the passage.

Tregelles (1854) on John 8:1-11 textual evidence

The most commonly quoted statement against the authenticity of John 8:1-11 is shown to be an unscientific and inaccurate bit of propaganda.

B. Metzger (1971) on John 8:1-11 ANNOTATED

A self-confessed "agnostic" engages in a campaign of disinformation against the verses so as to discredit the Bible, but is caught repeatedly lying and perpetrating a deception, on National TV and Radio.
