**Actually, what He wrote was not random at all; it's speculated that He wrote was the names of the Pharisees who asked the question as well as the list of sins that they themselves had committed. This was not only to show that they were not free of sins (and hence should also be punished, according to their own logic), but also adds to His authority to forgive sins (including that of the adulteress who was to be stoned).

* TagalongKid: Downplayed. John was traditionally the youngest of the Apostles. In art, he is often beardless to contrast with the others, as in famously Creator/LeonardoDaVinci's ''Last Supper'' where he also has [[LongHairedPrettyBoy long hair]], making him [[DudeLooksLikeALady look feminine]] to modern eyes and fueling stuff like ''Literature/TheDaVinciCode''...

* MumLooksLikeASister: Depictions of her at the time of the Passion of the Christ, including Michelangelo's famous Pieta, portray her as extremely young for the mother of the thirty-three-year-old Jesus. Also, if Mary was Jesus's sole biological parent, some figure this would have made Jesus her OppositeSexClone.



* TrueBlueFemininity: Traditionally depicted wearing blue robes. ([[TropeMaker This is generally the origin of this trope.]])

to:

* TeenagePregnancy: Her age isn't mentioned anywhere in the gospels, but most scholars figure she was a young teen when she got pregnant with Jesus since people tended to marry young in those days. Goes hand in hand with MumLooksLikeASister.

* CultureClash: To the Jews, Jesus' claim to be the Son of God was a BlasphemousBoast deserving the death penalty, but Pilate likely believed in ClassicalMythology where a mortal being the [[DivineParentage actual son of a god]] was quite possible, and where killing a demigod would be a ''very'' bad idea.

* ThisIsUnforgivable: Some sins are unforgivable even for him, such as blasphemy against the Holy Spirits.
--> "And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come."

* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: The Catholic and Orthodox churches believe she was bodily taken up into heaven at the end of her life as part of an event called the Assumption or Dormition. The difference lies in whether they believe she actually died first or not. The Orthodox and some Catholics hold that she did (hence ''Dormition'', "falling asleep" i.e. death) while other Catholics believe she didn't.

Protestants rejected this account due to the event not mentioned in the scripture.



** Played straight at the time of Jesus' birth; there's a reason she got her title. Possibly averted afterward, depending on whether you translate references to Jesus' "brothers and sisters" as literal or metaphorical.
** According to Matthew's account, Virgin Mary might not have stayed virgin ''after'' giving birth to Jesus and is implied to have union with Joseph afterward (Matthew 1:25) and Jesus is said to have brothers (Matthew 12:46), in contrast to Catholic accounts.

* PalsWithJesus: She ''is'', after all, His mom. Because of that, Catholics and Orthodox believe that her prayers are more powerful, that God will never turn down a request from her.

However, for Protestants, the relationship between her and Jesus is merely surrogate mother and son, and the latter occasionally rejected her request.
