“The Resurrection” is a 12’ x 40’ mural, oil on canvas. It is a depiction of the moment of Jesus emerging from the tomb, with waiting angels, fainted roman guards, and a crowd of Biblical notables excitedly waiting for His exit. They include, on right of Christ, Moses, David, Isaiah & Abraham. On the left of Christ are, Elijah, Noah, Esther, John the Baptist & Daniel. These are part of the ones referred to in Hebrews 12:1 as “the great cloud of witnesses.” On the upper right of the painting is the remnants of the place Jesus was earlier crucified, namely Mt. Calvary, also known as Golgotha, the place of the skull.
A friend of mine showed me this art and I want to share it with you, which is the largest mural ever painted of the resurrection and took 2 years to complete. It is beautiful, meaningfully biblical and interesting to look at. The mural was commissioned by and to be placed at The Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas.
