I like how you tied your title in at the end. It's hard to make such a well known Bible story come alive. It'll be interesting the ask the Lord some day what exactly He did write in the dust.

Never tire of hearing bible stories; and this one was no exception. You made it come alive...and I loved the "dust in the wind" suggestion of what Jesus was writing. Very well done...kudos.

This is so beautifully written--I love the added details like the hefting of the rocks into the air--I wish you'd done more of that! It really made the story freshly meaningful. Love the last paragraph.

ALSO love the ending of this - great job retelling this so-well-known story with a freshness that makes it not so well-known!

I enjoyed reading this familiar story from this persepctive, especially in light of a heated debate regarding the passage that's going on in another of my forums. I agree with Jan, I'd like to see more added details, especially as the story came to a close. The ones "hefting the stones" added flesh. Also loved what Jesus was writing in the dust!

Ditto Catrina's comments and Jan's. You've packed a lot into this. An engaging read. Yeggy
