The Woman Caught in Adultery
After the feast had ended Jesus went to the Temple courts at dawn with Andrew. As he sat on the ground, teaching the people, a group of Pharisees pushed their way through bearing a woman. They threw her to the ground before Jesus and gathered around her. Jesus knelt in the dust and began to write in it with his finger.

Pharisee 1: Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. What shall we do with her?
Pharisee 2: According to the Law of Moses, we should stone her.
Pharisee 3: Yes. Stone her!
Pharisee 4: Stone her, stone her...
Andrew: What evidence is there of this charge?
Pharisee 2: Well, she was caught... in adultery... in the act.
Pharisee 3: Red-handed!
Pharisee 4: Red faced as well!
All Pharisees: Yes, stone her, stone her, adulteress!
Andrew: I see, by whom?

There was a hushed silence, the crowd looked from one to another.
