The Tearing of the Shroud


Jesus Dies on the Cross
Now it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two. And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.’”Having said this, He breathed His last. So when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying, “Certainly this was a righteous Man!” Luke 23:44-49

..this painting is of the shroud being torn. Symbolic of God tearing the divide between himself and the world. The division being sin and the sacrificial solution being the death of his son, Jesus. Made and given to Melissa and I by my father. Gotta show it off... as best as a laptop camera can do.
