The Gospel in Paint

A couple of posts ago, I wrote about how, as part of an assignment, each person was to write the Gospel Story in their own voice. They could write a short story, a poem, a song, paint it, dance it, sing it, quilt it, whatever. One of the students painted 4 small paintings about the gospel. I asked her if I could share them here, and she graciously agreed. Thank you, Sue.

For each painting, she wrote a short description and I'll include those descriptions under each one:
"God so loved the world that he sent the Son made man to dwell among us. The light came into the darkness"

"He came to show us the Father and to bring us back to the Father. The Way, the Truth, the Life. The sacrificial lamb - the solution - He is the bridge to the Holy God for sinful mankind."

"Christ took our sins - became sin on the cross (at-one-ment). We have been redeemed, His blood cleanses us. God sees us through Him. In Christ we are heirs to eternal life."

"The Creator; Yahweh; Jehovah; Father/Son/Holy Spirit; Love beyond all knowledge"

Each of these four paintings are © 2007 Sue Cappadona, All Rights Reserved.

Truly, receiving these paintings from Sue is a blessing to me. I had to share them, it would be terribly selfish of me not to :).

I love the lighting in the third one, the one with the crosses. Very cool, and of course you had to share these!
