Beaten King (September 2011)
Scripture: Matthew 27:11-26 / Mark 15:1-15 /
Luke 23:1-5, 13-25 / John 18:28-19:16
28” x 16”
In this painting I tried to touch on several aspects of the last events of Christ’s life. I wanted to show the contrast between Christ’s Sovereign control and allowing Himself to be beaten and sentenced to death. All this
was in order to fulfill prophecy which is why that phrase is center stage diagonal across the piece. I also tried to use color as a way to emphasize this contrast in the picture.
