Beautiful picture! Jesus looks very approachable and friendly. :-) What does the Hebrew and/or Aramaic writing on front of the pulpit say? And is there a specific meaning to some of the symbols there?

Very lovely. Too many people seem to forget how Yeshua really was a rabbi, and used a prayer shawl, like he does in your drawing. And nice job with having him wear it correctly, with the tzitzit(fringes) on the front and back of the body, as it is supposed to be worn.

Thank you!  I tried to put as much research into it as I can :-) Thanks to more knowledge faith-based media is becoming more and more accurate in their portrayal of the culture of those times.

It is indeed. I do wonder sometimes if Jesus ever wore tefillin. I know he wore the tallit, as shown here, but not sure of the tefillin.

How awesome, especially with the actual Hebrew print. Looks very authentic and has a welcoming aura to it, as if Jesus were saying, "Come my child." Great job with the lighting.

I'm guessing this is your impression of when he reads the Isaiah passage about himself. I admire the additional effort you put into the details of your commissions. Once again glorifying him with your gifts.

I'm sure it's for a reason.  Perhaps he didn't want us worshiping any images of his physical form and ironically forget to worship him for who he is. Humans can get really caught up with visuals sometimes.
Reply
:iconlord-kiyo:
Lord-Kiyo Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2013
Well that is true.  but however in a since all we have are artifacts per say.  We just get a book, people could just worship the book itself in a since.  If he was to want to be worshiped directly, should he not have showed up from time to time?

Ooooh.

Image, not "item" though we can worship things ie. Mammon.  But we can get particularly obsessed with images of living things and people as referenced in Romans 8 where we are tempted to worship the created rather than the Creator. So ironically with too many images and statues of Jesus used in spiritual practice (vs. mere historical memory) we can actually start forgetting about the real him. Like how Buddha statues seem to have become popular decorations and commodities; their use completely devoid of any spiritual significance in restaurants, for example.

Lord-Kiyo Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2013
Well I do understand that.  For sure.  But as far as decorations go, people use the bible as decoration too.  Or use it like a mask on Sunday, and show no reflection of it for the rest of the week.

People will use anything as a "decoration" simply because it exists. The important part of the Bible is the words in it: not just the cover.
