John 8:8

Again he stooped down (palin katakupsa). First aorist active participle of katakuptw, old and rare verb (in Epictetus II, 16. 22) instead of katw kupsa in verse Deuteronomy 6 . With his finger (twi daktulwi). Not genuine, only in D and Western class. Wrote on the ground (egrapen ei thn ghn). Imperfect active of the simplex grapw, not katagrapw. The second picture of Jesus writing on the ground.
