GARDEN OF GETHESMANE
Garden of Gethsemane
Following the Last Supper, Jesus and some of His disciples returned to the
Garden of Gethsemane to pass the night. It was here, under just such
massive, ancient trees that our Lord wrestled with the great spiritual
dilemma of His life: would He accept the destiny that God the Father
intended, or would He choose to follow a different course?
I wanted my Garden of Gethsemane to suggest the brooding yet tranquil
setting where Jesus passed the night before His crucifixion.
I carried my paint and canvas up the windy heights of Mount Arbel to
capture this dramatic view of the Sea of Galilee. Galilee is the heart of
bible country; nearly a half-dozen of the small towns that figure
prominently in the New Testament are visible (if barely) from these heights.
My vantage point was none-too-secure, so I painted with a real sense of
urgency. I think this sense of excitement adds an element of drama to Mount
SUNRISE, SEA OF GALILEE
Sunrise, Sea of Galilee
My wife and I spent the night at a kibbutz on the Sea of Galilee, near
locations which were the very heart and soul of Jesus' ministry. I awoke
early to capture the effect of sunrise on these holy waters. But I wanted
Sunrise, Sea of Galilee to celebrate the grace of the fishing boats that
work these waters today, as they did when Jesus choose fishermen as His
first disciples. I shifted my position imaginatively, so that I could
include both the handsome fishing boat and the distant hills painted gold by
the glory of morning sun.
THE GARDEN TOMB
The Garden Tomb
Modern archaeology questions The Garden Tomb. as the actual place where
Christ's body was taken, but the setting remains a site of uncommon dignity
and tranquility. As I painted The Garden Tomb,. I allowed myself to believe
that this could have been the scene of the miracle after all. The open tomb
is empty; its shadowy interior is thrilling to enter - it seems to whisper
words of comfort to my spirit. On the wooden door a small plaque bears an
inscription from scripture: He is not here, For He is risen.
In the Middle Ages, the Via Dolorosa was identified as the route along
which Christ carried His cross; I've set my easel at the very spot
commemorating where Christ received His crown of thorns.
In addition to being a spiritual landmark for Christians, the Via
Dolorosa is also a modern street in the Arab section of the old city. As I
worked, small Arab children gathered about me and at one point playfully
pelted me with pebbles. Happily, Arab shopkeepers immediately came to my
rescue and chased off the pint-sized intruders. I later bought a decorative
tile from one of my rescuers as a small gesture of thanks.
