Good Friday: Even Death On A Cross

Christ Jesus,
though he was in the form of God,
did not regard equality with God
something to be grasped.
Rather, he emptied himself,
taking the form of a slave,
coming in human likeness;
and found human in appearance,
he humbled himself,
becoming obedient to the point of death,
even death on a cross.
Because of this, God greatly exalted him
and bestowed on him the name
which is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bend,
of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.


Phillippians 2:6-11

    Is this crucifixion by the French artist Georges Rouault? Thank you for posting.

      Yes, it is by Georges Rouault. He is my favorite artist to depict Jesus.

    No artist portrayed the Passion as prayerfully as Rouault
