What if Jesus was actually drawing in the sand, not writing, when the woman was accused of adultery? What if Jesus was expressing his compassion on the woman through artistic expression? What if he was preparing his teaching for the men who brought her with a quick drawing? What if he were delivering the Word through artistic expression? Through his parables, he drew for the people visual images of God's realm. What if those visual images weren't solely metaphorical? Wouldn't we be amazed if archeologists would one day unsurface a papyrus or sheepskin sketch journal that Jesus may have kept?
