What Jesus was writing in the dirt?



      

John 8:6

NKJV - 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

It is likely (but by no means certain) that since Jesus had told the Pharisees that the one without sin should cast the first stone, he may have been writing their names in the dirt since he knew their hearts. It may also be possible that he was quoting other scripture.
