What Did Jesus Write on the Ground?

Again he stooped down

and wrote on the ground. – John 8:8

  • It has long been a mystery what Jesus wrote on the ground the day the scribes and Pharisees dragged an adulterous woman before Him (John 8:3-11).
  • One day, as I was reading in Jeremiah, I was surprised to find the answer hidden deep in the Old Testament.
  • Why Did Jesus Write on the Ground?
  • The scribes and Pharisees had demanded that Jesus sentence the woman to death, as taught in Leviticus 20:10 and Deuteronomy 22:22-24.
  • [The NASB Study Bible notes that “they altered the law a little. The manner of execution was not prescribed unless the woman was a betrothed virgin. And the law required the execution of both parties, not just the woman”]
  • If Jesus had said to stone her, they would have charged Him with hypocrisy, because He was always teaching about mercy. If He said not to stone her, they would have charged Him with breaking the Mosaic Law.
  • Spotting their trick, He stooped down and wrote something on the ground, saying:
  • If anyone of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her. (John 8:7)
  • He then proceeded to write something else on the ground, after which they dropped their stones and walked away.
  • What Was it That Jesus Wrote on the Ground?
  • O Lord, the hope of Israel, all who forsake You will be put to shame. Those who turn away from You will be written in the dust because they have forsaken the Lord, the spring of living water. (Jeremiah 17:13)
  • I would like to offer that this passage seems to indicate that Jesus first wrote their names in the dust and perhaps then wrote a sin that they had committed next to their name.
  • Busted by Jesus, they walked away in shame and frustration. You see, being Yahweh, He knew what was in their hearts. (See 1 Chronicles 28:9Matthew 12:25; 22:18; John 2:251 Corinthians 14:25).
  • According to the Venerable Bede, (as well as St. Augustine), when Jesus wrote on the ground with His finger, He was harkening back to the time on Mt Sinai when He had written the Ten Commandments on stone tablets with His finger (Exodus 32:15-16).
  • Jesus is the Author Who Writes and Fulfills the Law
  • In other words, the same finger that had written the Law back then was also the finger that was writing on the ground now.
  • Therefore, since He was the author of the Law, He was the One to properly interpret and execute it (Exodus 31:18Deuteronomy 9:10).
  • Additionally, being the One who was soon to receive the penalty for the sins of the adulterous woman upon Himself, He had every right to extend grace and mercy to her.
  • It is interesting to note that in Luke 11:20, Jesus referred to the “finger of God” when He drove the demon out of a man who could not speak. The crowd had accused Him of driving the demon out by the power of Beelzebub—the prince of demons.
  • In response, and for those with eyes to see it, Jesus’ “finger of God” language indicated that He was the same God who wrote the Law on the stone tablets and was therefore God Himself.

  • Jesus Is the Only One Who Can Judge Hearts
  • We should note that because God had created man “out of the dust” (Genesis 2:7) and since He had come to “write the law on people’s hearts” (Jeremiah 31:33Psalm 37:31Romans 2:14-152 Corinthians 3:3Hebrews 8:10; 10:16), it is likely that when he wrote on the ground that day in the presence of the scribes and Pharisees, He had in a sense, written the supreme call to mercy.
  • In the dust he sends the message that those who refuse mercy will not receive mercy (James 2:12-13), and, “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful” (Luke 6:36). 
  • That allows us to circle back to see one final message to the Pharisees: 
  • Do not judge, or you too will be judged. (Matthew 7:1)
  • That is the ultimate fulfillment of the Law.
  • You are a letter from Christ….written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. (2 Corinthians 3:3)

 

For he that findeth me shall find life, and shall receive mercy from the Lord. But he that sinneth against me, harmeth his own soul; All those who hate me love death.’ Proverb. 8:35-36 But God shows his love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 He committed no sin, nor was any guile found in his mouth; He did not rebuke in return; He did not threaten when he suffered, but committed himself to the righteous judge. He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the cross, that we might die to sins and live to righteousness; By His stripes you were healed. 1 st. Proverb. 8:35-36 Nor is salvation in any other; For there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 Jesus said to him: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 Behold, he comes with the clouds, and every eye shall see him, even those who despise him; And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of him. So be it! Amen! Revelation 1:7 And he was clothed in blood; And his name is called ‘Word of God’. Revelation 19:13 “And behold, I come quickly; And I have my reward to give to every man according to his work. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” Revelation 22:12-13 Note: Today people don’t even have time to go to heaven. Believe in Jesus Christ and you will receive forgiveness of sins, salvation and eternal life.
