Billings portrays the Savior reaching toward the woman taken in adultery, following the moment He wrote in the dirt and challenged those without fault to cast the first stone. Might Christ have wanted some time to process His own emotions at seeing a woman abused? Might He be considering how to lift the woman yet also appease the crowd? Billings finds inspiration by pondering the ways Jesus showed love to those whom society identified as lesser.
"Yes, Jesus loves all people, but His earthly service was to the lowly, who needed Him most."
