I love this kind of picture. And yet: is this the historical Jesus, or the dad we wish we had?

How about calling it, “let the little children suffer…”?

I think I would call it…
“After Supper”
I don’t know why exactly.

Thanks, Steve, for the URL. Someone had emailed me low-resolution copies years ago, and I tried to track down the source on the internet and never got anywhere.

dopderbeck,
The gospellers included what they did in their narratives for reasons that were good to them, but their using words to portray the “historical Jesus” doesn’t necessarily preclude how these drawings portray Jesus.
Jesus said if we’ve seen him we’ve seen the Father. To me, the “historical Jesus” and seeing these drawings as images of the dad we wish we had are not mutually exclusive.
I suspect you might think this too…
Regards-
Dana

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
