Jesus on the Cross - Pictures of Paintings

Hi, this shows pictures of Jesus on the Cross from some of the most famous paintings. As my 2scot.com site announces on many pages, I am an artist who paints and also takes pictures at some of the greatest art museums in world - especially at my favorite museum, the Louvre in Paris.

Enjoy some scripture with each Picture of Jesus on the Cross. I will also share some words as these pictures of Jesus often move me to tears.


This close up picture of Jesus on the Cross is from the Louvre Museum.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. [Hebrews 12:2]

 

On the Cross - close up

Can we image anguish from angels, striving to collect each precious drop
of sacred blood. Yes from an unblemished Lamb, sacrificed from on high.

Who has cried tears and sought the angels who stand by so near?
Who will heal our abyss of pain? Jesus on the Cross can sooth these fears.

Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read:
JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
[John 19: 19]

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,
but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. [1 Corinthians 1:18]

Christ on the Cross [by Delacroix in 1853]

I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. [Philippians 3: 18-20]

 


With the Cross of Jesus ... search inside the eyes, remove each disguise,
each surface lie, and open the soul to Godly grace that waits at the door.
