Pictures of Christ

Images of Jesus can evoke all sorts of feelings - from annoyance at trying to capture something that is unknowable, through dislike and pleasure, to a spirit of worship and praise. Whatever your reaction, it is sometimes instructive to look at the images that others have made in order to gain an insight into their thinking and understanding.

An earlier post looks at some African pictures of Jesus. If you missed it you can find the pictures here: African Pictures of Christ

The excellent rejesus website has an interesting collection of different faces of Jesus - if you are interested, they are here: Faces of Jesus

Below are one or two examples:

    I like this one Kath - the image of a laughing Jesus is wonderful:

    Unfortunately it won't let me copy the image but if you follow your link, there is one called:

    Laughing Liberator

    the explanation is inspiring as well, wonderful stuff! x


    .........As Jesus himself said: “Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh” (Luke 6:21). The laughter of Jesus is the laughter of hope and joy in the face of despair.

    Very deep words, Jayne. Thank you for your contribution. I particularly like 'The laughter of Jesus is the laughter of hope and joy in the face of despair'.
