Modern Secular Artwork by Greg Olsen

joy_of_the_lord_largeSomeone posted this image of Jesus Emanuel on my Facebook page.

I LOVE it!

The second I laid my eyes on this picture I was drawn into it.

Jesus Emanuel is one of my favorite people and has played such an important part in my life

I do not care for images of Him in the crucifixion at all.

I have a huge appreciation for Renaissance artwork, but the images of Jesus in them are not how I see Him in my mind’s eye.

The image above by Greg Olsen is exactly how I view Him.   I simply had to Google the artist, and I found so many wonderful paintings of Jesus Emanuel that represent Him so beautifully.

I always figured that Jesus would be very handsome, with a kind face and engaging smile.

This is very contrary to how He is represented in Renaissance art.

I envision Jesus being very tall as well.
