I would say that Jesus only spoke what the Father told Him to speak. (John 12:49) In the same way the Spirit speaks only what the Father tells Him to speak. (John 16:13) It means that He does not speak out of His own authority, but by speaking the words of the Father, gives all glory to the Father and shows us the example to do so too, in a sense. ...

The note for John 5:29 in the John MacArthur NASB Study Bible (MacArthur is Calvinist) says: Jesus was not teaching for justification by works (see 6:29).

As you probably know, the language of the Bible can be highly figurative at points.

From John Gill's exposition of this passage: For he shall not speak of himself: as Christ, the Son, spoke not of himself in opposition to the Father, so the Spirit speaks not of himself in opposition either to the Father, or the Son, but in perfect agreement with both; being, as of the same nature and essence, power and glory, so of the same mind, ...

Jesus write on the ground after asking the people was....NOT GUILTY ... Because in the Law of God, the case is proven if there's 2 witness. But they accusing only the women no one can prove that she is guilty. So, Jesus judge NOT GUILTY., because only God can judge us.
