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.
I love His serene smile in this one
