Sense of the Day: Sinless Person

SOTD-SocialShare-612x612Sense: sinless person

n. — a person who has committed no immoral or unrighteous acts.

And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”

John 8:7

“Sinless person” seems like an isolated concept in the Bible. The Bible Sense Lexicon includes it only once in its concordance entry. But what if someone wants to explore such an isolated concept more fully? One way to do this would be to explore its “sister terms.” For example, the visualization in the Bible Sense Lexicon puts “sinless person” in relation to “innocent person,” “blameless person,” “faithful person,” “righteous person,” and “upright person.” How would a “sinless person” be similar to these concepts? How would it be different?
