He defended the woman who was an adulterer from those who were about to stone her for her sin. The men who wanted to stone her were also sinners, hence they were hypocrites. Mary Magdalene was another such person that Jesus defended. She was the sinner who washed Jesus' feet with her tears, dried them with her hair and poured expensive ointments on them as well. Judas Iscariot objected to the waste of such expensive ointment saying that it could have been sold and given to the poor. However the Gospel tells us that Judas was a thief and cared nothing for the poor. Jesus hypothetically defended the tax collector who beat his chest begging God on his knees to have mercy on him, a sinner, against the Pharisee who stood by him, gloating to God for being better than this wretched sinner, since he observed every aspect of the Law, and the other guy did not (holier than thou). There are many such examples in the Gospel. Jesus really didn't like hypocrites. He referred to them as snakes and brood of vipers.
