rejoice!!

Throughout this holy week series, I’ve correlated my friend’s creativity and sufferings with those of the lord jesus christ. He suffered greatly in making the world and cosmos, and us; and in redeeming us after the fall in eden.  If you know/acknowledge you are a sinner, this is for you. I do. It is for me.

Here are resurrection images used with permission by Maine artist, Nancy Jacob.

Maundy Thursday

For our contemplation.

Praying in Gethsemane

 

In this image the Lord Jesus is being ministered to by an angel as He prays in the Garden of Gethsemane the night before He is to be crucified.

The image of HIS contemplation is backgrounded in a remoter fore-glimpse of what is to come.

But let us contemplate the will of God with Him in this image. For He prays to be relieved of the necessity to endure the crucifixion. And, next, prays God’s will be done.

Shortly they will come for Him.
