Biblical Art by Old Masters

The Last Supper, by Leonardo Da Vinci: This famous painting depicts the establishment of the new covenant, at the Lordís Supper. The covenant is based on Godís forgiveness of sins, through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross: "Then Jesus took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's kingdom." Reference: Matthew 26:26-29

Above: The Conversion of Paul, by Caravaggio (1573 Ė 1610 a.d.) . The painting above depicts Paul flat on his back after seeing the risen Christ. This event was a great turning point in history. Paul (at that time called Saul) was an arch-enemy of the church. He was persecuting the Christians and hauling them off to jail. When Paul was on his way to Damascus, the risen Christ appeared to him. Paul was blinded for three days, by the sight of the risen Christ. This encounter completely transformed him from an enemy of Christ, to one of the greatest proponent of the Christian faith. There is only one solid explanation for this dramatic turnaround: Paul saw the risen Christ! Biblical References: Acts 9:1-22, 1 Corinthians 15:3-11
