The Messiah

Limited Edition Litho  14 x 18    $149

From the discolored mortar oozing from the temple walls in Jerusalem, the ancient Hebrew text of Isaiah 53 appears: “He was despised and rejected… pierced for our transgressions… crushed for our iniquities… by his wounds we are healed.” The crucifixion hangs in the background as a Pharisee, perhaps Nicodemus, ponders the meaning, finally realizing the connection of the scripture’s prophecy to Jesus’ death. In the shadow of the cross he concludes this is, truly, “The Messiah.”
