Statement of Faith

At the feet of Jesus they threw her,
Unable to hide their disgust.
Caught in adultery, or so they said;
A sordid woman of lust.

In pious judgment, there they stood;
So sure that He would say.
"This wicked woman must be stoned!"
Then they'd carry her body away.

But Jesus didn't reply at all
In the way they thought He would.
Instead, He knelt and wrote some words
In the dust near where they stood.

What He wrote, we will never know,
But they understood Him all too well.
And none raised a hand to cast a stone,
For, at His feet, all men have fell.

1991 J M McIntosh

They said to Him, "Teacher, this woman was 
caught in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses, 
in the law, commanded us that such be stoned. But 
what do you say? 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. (John 8:4-6)
