Sin and Sorrow
The story that we read now puts Jesus squarely up against that Law, giving us a glimpse of who Jesus is and revealing what God has sent him to do – show compassion, offer forgiveness and grace, and challenge us to more righteous living. The scene is early morning, in the temple, Jesus is sitting down to teach. The scribes and Pharisees make a scene of their own, thrusting in front of him a woman who clearly was guilty of breaking the law. Now what does Jesus have to say about that?
Verses 6b and 8: What Jesus wrote on the ground is not known. Some ancient authorities add a clarifying phrase, Jesus wrote on the ground, “the sin of each of them.” But we do not know.
