“Forgiven” by Thomas Blackshear

A blog post describes the piece very well …

This reflects to me the power of the resurrected Son of God to save those who cannot save themselves. The man is a plain, average Joe (like us), he is powerless, and yet with what strength he does have he still holds on to the weapons of execution so he is guilty as a naked gun. The man’s face is a mixture of pain, anguish and guilt. And the only thing that sustains him is the strength and grace of the risen Lord. Note, where blood has fallen, lilies are growing = new life begins!

From Euangelizomai blog.

This has been a deeply serious situation. We are moving towards resolution. A lot of people are going to be in a lot of trouble. But I want them to know that even The Lord Jesus Christ, seemingly less concerned about his recent injury, would rather stop his torturer from falling once the terribleness of their acts had overcome them … “No ! You don’t have to fall !“.
