Is there no one left?

Why did Jesus not condemn the woman caught in adultery and what did he write on the ground?

Definitely one for Pastor Amos. Although it is clear that Jesus did not sit in the seat of Moses at that time.

Hi

Joh 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world       

Love and peace

Thanks!
Could what He was writing have been something that exposed the sins of her accusers or at least demonstrated that He knew more than He should have about them? It's the only thing I can think of that would have the effect that it did.
Btw this is not meant to be a trick question or anything. I'm not always up to no good!

Quite possible that he was writing out a charge sheet against them, so they would know that Jesus knew their sins.

Hi
Best to check the relative scripture

       they said to him, ?Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?? This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, ?Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.?  And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus stood up and said to her, ?Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you??  She said, ?No one, Lord.? And Jesus said, ?Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.? ]]
John 8:4-‬11 ESV

From reading the above I don't think our Lord did not write anything of any importance he was just wasting time  while he waited for those who were accusing the woman would feel the shame of his words and disappear.

There is a spiritual side to the law of Moses
Christ is the stone which is cast at the priesthood who is the woman so in this light stoning the woman is a good thing.

Love and Peace

There was nothing wrong with accusing the woman of adultery, which was perfectly legal and within the law.  The wrongfulness was in the inappropriateness of their coming to Christ to demand that he usurp the seat of Moses to judge her. He didn't sit in Moses' seat. They knew the correct legal procedure wasn't to ask Christ for his opinion. The only way that they could have had the authority to stone her without due process was to act with divine authority commensurate with being the son of God himself.

Writing was synonymous with a judicial process and it is this that Christ was likely initimating by his writing, indicating that their sins would be taken into account as well as the woman's, in any inquiry conducted by Christ on his authority. This they did not want to hear about. So they left.

That explanation kinda reminds me of when Jesus was brought before Pilate...which in the end he washed his hands of the guilt of Jesus being killed/blood spilt.

Maybe Jesus wrote...who is sinless wash ya hands in the well before throwing a rock.  Or maybe He wrote she belonged to God so careful boys 🤷‍♀️
