The Bale out declaration written in the sand

Perhaps Jesus had spent more time in Mount Olives than any other place because it was His most favorite place of prayer.

Jesus came to the temple straight from Mount Olives one early morning to teach, and a big crowd came to listen to His teachings. (John 8:2). When he was out of the temple at an open area, the Scribes and the Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery.

The BJP and the Communist party are totally far apart in their political ideology, but they hold hand at times to attack the Congress party. What Jesus faced was an identical situation. The Scribes were men who preserved the law and the manuscripts. They were the Doctors of the law-the teachers and the defenders of the civil and criminal laws. When Jesus presented divine laws, they didnt like it, so they were always attacking Jesus Christ in every chance possible.

Pharisees. Called Hasidim , this movement arose during the early part of the second B.C. This is a very conservative religious movement believed in the immortality of the soul, life after death, in resurrection, future judgment and of a coming Messiah. The were very rigorous and strict interpreters and appliers of the law, so it was quite common for them to attack Jesus Christ.

Jesus with his less educated and ordinary folks on one side, on the other hand the educated united front was giving him a classic challenge to trap him through the law given by Moses. In Mathew 8:4, we read about a leper who was healed and Jesus told him to go the temple to show himself to the priests and offer the gift that Moses commanded as a testimony to them. Was Jesus alaw-breaker of laws given by Moses? He never did.
After giving a long lecture at the Temple, Jesus was tired, might have eaten something. How these Pharisees and the Scribes got a lady who was in the business of prostitution? Some of them may know her personally, and had some business relationship with her. The main purpose of bringing her in front of Jesus was to get a blank certificate from Jesus and to conduct a morning stone throwing show at a defenseless poor lady, like the beheading of the criminals in the Muslim countries after the Friday prayer.

Jesus didnt heed to their trapping questions, but sat down on the ground and wrote something very serious. He mi ght have written at the hot sand For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through me. John 1:17. The second question came, and Jesus answered with authority He who is without a sin among you, let him throw a stone at her fi rst. The lawyers and the religious fanatics with bag full of sharp stones left the place in total shame. Our Lord wrote again on the sand while they were walking in a hurry; He was writing in a hurry the love letter in the sand Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more. What a great judge of compassion is our LORD JESUS!

MR. SAM: Thank you so greatly for your
constructive criticism. For the last
42 years, I have written so many comments in
both religious and secular news
papers around the world, but I am an
infant in writing articles. Writing for the first time in the Believers Jounral, and a lot of shortcomings will be wrapped up in every article. People
of your caliber can give me some great
lessons in journalism which is greatly

@author: a.s mathew i dont understand how you could jump sentences to make a story. you brought the audultrer in picture and immediately introduced bjp in the picture. first of congress does not equal to jesus. pretty much all political parties are corrupt. so this comparison is totally baseless.

secondly jesus never had 2g scam lurking in his backyard as congress does.

To AS Mathew:- mr. Simpleone asked a simple question against which your answer was truly cruel. In fact you threw your first stone at him and condemned him. For asking a question you need not to be a philosopher. Even if it is a philosophical question you are liable to answer "yes" or " no, because the child belongs to you. Let me tell you, even I do not understand what you intend to establish out of it. The woman caught in adultery is not merely a story, but it is an account of certain facts; it is also a sign.

@ tom ny- you said 'it is an eye opener'- were your eyes closed all these time! Atleast try to keep your eye-open when you are awake!
a. s. mathew (December 12, 2011)
Mr. Simpleone: It seems like, you are
a philosopher with great rational and
critical mind like Bertrand Russell;
simply questioning for the fun of
questioning. If you can't understand
the point, I am not able to answer it.
simpleone (December 12, 2011)
May I know, Mr. Mathew, what is the point you want to establish here, in a nutshell?

Thank you
