In the Tanakh:
In the Brit Hadashah:
In the Talmud
People who were almost stoned in religious texts
In the Tanakh:
In the Brit Hadashah - Renewed Covenant:
- The good news of Yoachanan chapter 8 gives the story of Yeshua and the woman taken in adultery, in which people wanted to stone the woman.
- Yeshua (Yoachanan 10:31)
- The captain of the Temple and his officers (Acts 5:26)

The criteria for death
by stoning are not met such without temple, so the Sanhedrin cannot implement.
Stoning is death sentence, however at present moment it is not practice.
Possible fact that the Torah stoning can only be enforce in the Land of Yisrael
and at present moment there is no temple. For death sentence to be carried out
in accordance to Torah guidelines, there has to be a Sanhedrin and the Sanhedrin has to be seated in a chamber on the Temple mount to hand down a verdict. Once the Temple fell in 70 CE there was no more
death sentence executed by Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin cannot carry out such
sentence. Only the Sanhedrin is authorised to pass a death sentence verdict
by means of stoning.
However at the time of Yeshua, the Romans took
away the authority power of the Sanhedrin to execute death sentence. That is
why we can see the trial had to hand over to Pontos Pilate the authority to
execute the death sentence.
