Voldemort in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York???

posted by Mark D. Roberts

During a recent trip to New York City, I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art. “The Met,” which contains over two million works of art, is one of the world’s largest art galleries. You could spend days wandering through its rooms and corridors.
I was delighted to see works by some of my favorite artists (Rembrandt, El Greco, Van Gogh, Vermeer). But I was most surprised by a bust in the Greek and Roman Art exhibit. A sign identifies the bust as “Marble portrait bust of a man. Roman. Julio-Claudian period, mid 1st century A.D.” I’m sure the experts at the Met think they know what they’re doing.
But if you’ve seen the recent Harry Potter movies, you know very well who the bust represents. It’s none other than Voldemort, the most evil wizard of all. Who knows how the Dark Lord got his bust in the Met? But there’s no question about its true identity.
You check it out for yourself. Am I right, or am I right? Could this be a bust of Lord Voldemort?

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? Conclusions
In this series on the death of Jesus, I have presented four different perspectives on why Jesus had to die: Roman, Jewish, Jesus’, and Early Christian. I believe that each of these points of view has merit, and that we cannot fully understand the necessity of Jesus’ death without taking them all

Can We Find God in the City? Psalm 48:1-14 Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. Walk around and count the many towers. Take note of the fortified walls, and tour all the citadels, that you may describe them to future generations. For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever,

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 3
An Act and Symbol of Love Perhaps one of the most startling of the early Christian interpretations of the cross was that it was all about love. It’s easy in our day, when crosses are religious symbols, attractive ornaments, and trendy jewelry to associate the cross with love. But, in the first

The Means of Reconciliation In my last post, I examined one of the very earliest Christian statements of the purpose of Jesus’ death. According to the tradition encapsulated in 1 Corinthians 15, Jesus died “for our sins in accordance with the scriptures” (15:3). Yet this text doesn’t expl
