Christ’s Holiness, Christ’s Humanity
In this post-Christian world (so they say), I would like to share with you the paintings of a Russian Artist named Alexander Lepetuhin, who, upon being told by doctors he had only perhaps four years left to live, devoted his energies into his Faith.
“Fine, I decided. Then all that time I will spend drawing Christ and his apostles.”
Thus was born the Cycle of some 1000 Paintings of the Life of Christ and the Apostles.
For further information, see:
3. Jesus Prays:
And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
(Luke 22: 41-44)
