God’s Third Writing

John 8:6 But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

Quite ironic that one day the scribes and Pharisees tempt Jesus with the Law that He wrote.
It happened early one morning as He was teaching when they brought a woman whom they caught in the very act of adultery.
They pressed Him to decide on whether she should be stoned or not according to the Law.
That’s when He stooped down and wrote in the dirt.
They kept on pressing and pressing until He looked up and said, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” John 8:7
One by one the accusers dropped their stones and left.
John 8:10-11
When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”
She said, “No one, Lord.”
And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” John 8:10-11
It’s not known exactly what He wrote in the dirt but it certainly indicates His grace and mercy.
Although the Law holds true and it will judge all people, His grace and mercy is true too and can save all people.
