This is a stunning image of Jesus in sorrow as he holds an aborted fetus. It is titled His Image and the original was painted by Beth Sweigard. In the background there is a front page of a newspaper headline about how many millions of abortions preformed each year. However, Jesus' torso is covering the actual number, signifying that despite our estimates, only our Lord knows exactly how many such deaths occur each year.
Jesus. Higher than the mountains that I face. Stronger than the power of the grave. Constant through the trial & the change. Your love never fails, it never gives up it never runs out on me. On and on it goes. It overwhelms & satisfies my soul. And I never ever have to be afraid. In death & in life I'm confident & covered by the power of your great love. My debt is paid, there's nothing that can separate my heart from Your great love!
Joy Of The Lord By Liz Lemon Swindle As a little girl I would look through our family Bible. The pictures were dark & foreboding & I was sure the Lord was waiting for me to make a mistake so He could punish me. I don't think I am alone. As I travel around I hear statements like, “Why aren’t there any pictures of Jesus happy?” I wanted to create a picture for my children of the loving friend I longed for as a child. http://www.foundationarts.com/p-22269-joy-of-the-lord.aspx?affiliateid=10199
“The Resurrection” by Ron DiCianni. “The Resurrection” is a depiction of the moment Jesus emerges from the tomb. Ron said that he had never seen that particular scene painted before. He wanted to capture a single moment in time. Jesus steps up and out of the grave, his hands vaulting himself from the borrowed tomb into the glorious resurrection dawn of Easter morning.
