The Lamb of God Cross

1WMEaster Cross lambI love the new cross Design for Easter 2013. The design may look difficult for beginners but I assure you that I will take you step by step thru painting this and you won’t believe how very simple it really is. So far as the scripture goes, you can use mine or one of your choice, or none at all. The cross itself is beautiful enough to stand alone and make a personal statement of faith.

The scriptures I chose have wonderful significance for Easter. The first one is from Genesis. Remember Abraham was on his way to sacrifice HIS son….and Isaac kept asking his father, “Where is the lamb for the sacrifice?” Abraham said “God, Himself, will provide the Lamb”…a foreshadowing of the day when God did do just that…and in the second Scripture I quoted John the Baptist who said, when he saw Jesus …”Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” The LAMB, Abraham foretold 2000 years earlier, was finally here.

I love that the scriptures on this painting come from the Old and New Testaments. And I love the symbolism of the shape of the Cross. The horizontal lines make a bridge pointing from the Old Testament to the New Testament and the vertical lines pointing down from God to Man.

I know I’ve already said this but: love this painting! I had so much fun designing it and painting it and I’d love to paint it with you!
