      Jack, In reply to your interest in the Pericope de Adultera and John's Chapter 21: The wisdom statement of the Wisdom section of a Parable gives specific meaning to the story statement of its Story section. The original parable, into which the Pericope was placed, had as its wisdom statement of the Wisdom section what we call verses 17 and 18, "In your law it is written that the testimony of two witnesses is valid. I testify on my own behalf, and the Father who sent me testifies on my behalf." With the inclusion of your pericope of interest, the new story statement of the Story section of that new parable that was formed ends with the last half of what we call verse 6, "Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground." {The Father who wrote with his finger the ten commandment that he gave to Moses, forgave the Jews when they broke the greate st, the first of the commandments. The Pharisees have forgotten the Father of Mercy when they test Jesus by telling him that Moses commanded them to stone the woman. Jesus writing with his finger on the ground shows that the Father is testifying with him, on his behalf. This is how the wW gives specific meaning to the new sS.} I propose to you that The Church liked the revision and incorporated the change. Remember in the synoptic gospels: It is by the finger of God that Jesus' words cast out demons! The Father is always testifying on Jesus' behalf. Since John's Chapter 21 was added later, after the last Parable was already finished, it had to be a parable by itself--and it is! It is the only chapter of John's gospel which is an entire parable. If you, or anyone else, are interested in receiving the origin of the literary form of the Parable which is used by the writers of the entire Christian Scriptures, I will send you an attachment which includes one of John's thirty-one Parables. mikeandrewcarrell@... {It will be hard for you to accept this next statement without understanding the literary form, but each of the four gospels has one Parable that has a double meaning. It states their intention that we understand their gospel in this literary form.

      Blessings, Mike Carrell
