THE STUMBLING STONE...

Here are a few works of art I shot in European galleries and Cathedrals, all depicting pieces of the life of a man called Jesus.
During this 'Holy Week' when people worldwide solemnly recall his last days on earth, the dilemma of the 'one from whom men hide their faces' remains...
Is he...

...a mere religious figure out of the past or the risen king of all creation?

...a selfish schemer and masterful manipulator or the purest expression of love?

...irrelevant today or the ultimate way of life?

Were his words the preposterous statements of a raving lunatic or timely, well spoken truth?

Was his death a pitiful end or with unfathomable purpose?

Was his life a case of hope deferred or the consummate fulfillment of promise?

The ball's in our court...







In the words of Mavis Staples... Lord, forgive me for forgetting, without your giving, nothing would be mine...

Here's to the One from whom all blessings flow...

Shalom
