A curious parallel: Jesus, like Socrates, never writes. But, in both cases (if memory serves), there is a single exception to this rule:
(i) Jesus writes in the dust in defence of a woman whom he refuses to condemn (the pericope de adultera at John 8.2-11);
(ii) Socrates traces geometric figures in the dirt on behalf of a slave-boy who (per Socrates) has an immortal soul (Meno 84c-85d).
