Why Didn't Jesus Write?

RE: Why Didn't Jesus Write?
Poor, G-C.  You still can't understand that the story is a made up yarn which was inserted centuries later, can you?

If it had said that "jesus" was faster than a speeding bullet you'd still try to make up lame excuses for it.

So would Jesus.

"This doesn't usually happen. It's because you're so sexy; you should take it as a compliment. Anyway, can you go now? I need to sleep."
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

Why then doesn't the literal interpretation of Jesus writing mean He is writing.  something intelligent on the ground. I'm not trying to defend either view between you and Drich, all I'm saying if you want to be so literal about Jesus's words causing the men to leave then why not accept that literally Jesus was writing intelligently on the ground. The scripture does say writing and not scribbling.

I take no issue with the notion that Jesus writing on the ground would indicate that he was literate. The OP asks why Jesus didn't "write the information himself," by which I assume it is asking why he did not write a gospel of his own. From there the discussion went towards the question of his literacy.
"Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape- like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered."

I agree. I should have explained myself better, your post was the best one I could use to point out to everyone that the passage was recorded as writing and not scribbling and if one part of the passage was to be taken literally then that must be applied to the rest of the passage.

God loves those who believe and those who do not and the same goes for me, you have no choice in this matter. That puts the matter of total free will to rest.

Jesus didn't write for the same reason God didn't give the law to Moses.  It's a fairy tale.
