Présentation de l'éditeur
Preface by Daniel
The Savior of the world. What more can be said about the greatest person that ever lived. If you don't know who Jesus Christ is, get a Bible, your life will be forever transformed. The New Testament of the Bible is the best source of information about Jesus Christ, the Son of Man.
This image presentation is very personal to me, as it represents salvation. I accepted Christ as a teenager in the 1970s, but never fully submitted myself to him. Like many teens I walked away from my faith and constantly struggled with life. The Lord brought me to my knees in June of 2006, and I will never turn my back on him again. I pray that everyone would give him a chance, to witness the transforming power Jesus offers, as well as his Gift of eternal salvation.
The image gallery contains the most beautiful historical portraits of Jesus I've found. Many are detail images from larger scenes, as I wanted to present close-up expressions that often get lost in a larger scene. All aspects of Christ's adult life are presented within the gallery. Inspiring paintings of Jesus healing the sick and blind, the Garden of Gethsemane, the transfiguration and Jesus with the children. Emotionally touching images of his betrayal, the flagellation, the crucifixion, deposition and resurrection. Uplifting images of Christ as Consolator, giving his blessing and the Sermon on the Mount. In addition to many other bible themes and parables illustrated.
Some of histories greatest artists are presented in the gallery. Wonderful paintings by Carl Bloch and Caravaggio, Raphael, Antonella da Messina and Diego Velazquez, Hans Memling, William Bouguereau and Sir Anthony van Dyck. Beautiful illustrations by Currier and Ives, Gustave Dore, Albrecht Durer and Eugene Delacroix.
