Watch These Stunning Images of Jesus [Video]
[Editor’s Note: The image that accompanies this post is called “The Ascension of Christ” by Salvador Dali.]
The great church father Augustine said of Jesus during his own Christ Awakening experience: “You sparkled, you burned, and you drove away my blindness so that now I pant for you alone.”
Through the centuries, as their blindness was driven away, artists of every culture and every stream of the Church have used art to express the glory of Jesus. There are some wonders that words can’t convey.
One of my favorite resources on ChristNow.com is the ten-minute artwork video. Set to Handel’s Messiah, the video features art from various countries of the world—from the Netherlands to Indonesia to Myanmar to the United States and others. And it features art down through the ages.
When I watch the video, I’m filled with the stunning awareness that indeed Jesus is supreme over space and time. He has been worshiped throughout space and time. Christ is Lord of all.
But that’s not the only reason I love the art video. In chronological order, the video follows Jesus through the seasons of his life—birth, earthly ministry, arrest, crucifixion, resurrection, and glorious ascension to the right hand of the Father. I greatly appreciate all the images of the Ascension this video displays because they highlight this crucial event in the life of Christ often ignored by the Church.
It truly is an emotional experience. I encourage you to watch the video. Take ten minutes to focus on Jesus. Turn off your phone, close your email inbox, and focus on Christ. If you’re interested in the details of the art, the information sheet can help.
Join with me and scores of artists from space and time in lifting up the reigning Christ.
Watch the video now.
