Originally, before I attended Easter Service, I planned to share some of my favorite religious artwork this Easter. I was so decided about my favorite art pieces that I am sharing a second post this Easter day! I took art history, when I was in my junior year of college Germany (I lived there almost 8 years). One of my favorite artists was Matthias Grünewald. He was a German renaissance painter of religious artwork, most well-known for his Isenheim altar piece. I wrote an extensive report on these pieces long a go. The altar piece is now in the Colmar Art museum in France. I regret I never was so close and never went to see it in person. Grünewald’s work was said to be somewhat grotesque in his realistic depictions of Jesus Christ, but it served as an inspiration for prayer and godliness as it stood in the center of the church. I hope it inspires you, too!
Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed
Luk 24:5 And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?
Luk 24:6 He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee,
Luk 24:7 that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.”
