Percy Jackson and the Sea Monster: Jesus Writing (?)Pawing On The Ground

John 8: 1-11

New International Version (NIV)


but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

11 “No one, sir,” she said.

“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”


Couldn't help but notice how the religious leader threw the first stone; and he did it at almost point blank range!

No way he could miss.

Knocked this woman unconscious immediately.

The other stones probably did not matter at this point.

If there is no way getting around a stoning, guess this is the way to do it.  

Just these other men,most likely female issues going on in their lives,  bipolar meds.

As well as their appearances at these stonings, 
a way of keeping the female members of their family in line.
