Art and Beauty Tuesday--Manuel Panselinos
Theologian John Dominic Crossan points out that in Western Christian art, illustrations of the Resurrection often show Jesus alone, whereas in Eastern Christian iconography, Jesus is never shown alone at the Resurrection.
Why? In the East, Christ's mission and even His death is seen as one of healing and not one of appeasing an angry God.
This week we are looking at the true meaning of the Kingdom of God--one of cooperation with Christ in bringing His love into the world.
