If I were to post what I think is the most inspiring picture of Christ, I would be banned, hunted down, and killed, most likely.

I have yet to see a picture of Christ so I cant say. There are no pictures of Jesus IMHO. Many man made iterpretations butI will stop here as this thread isnt about that.

I like this one. Notice there is no door knob. You have to let Christ into your home, your family and your life.

btw, drop me an IM if you want the pic with the 50 cal. I have it. I'm not offended by it but then again, it's not the most tasteful of pictures.

It's not a picture but a sculpture by Rodin called The Christ and the Magdelene

Two thoughts:

If you believe in God and Jesus as revealed in the Bible, you probably believe that God is able to communicate to man in any way He chooses. In the light of this, the fact that there are no divinely-inspired pictures of Jesus (such as you might concievably find in the Bible) ought to make you wonder whether God wants us "visualize" Him in this way.

Second, is a picture the best way to know a person? I might see a picture of an individual, but unless I READ descriptions of that person's character, or READ something which that person has written or transcriptions of something they said, I can't really KNOW the person. If I want to really know someone, I need to read a letter from them or talk to them in person or on the phone.

My point is simply that, while pictures seem nice, they can actually get in the way of getting to know who Jesus is or having communion with Him personally. It is possible that a person can look at a picture, get a nice warm religious feeling, and never seek to know Him personally.

Just some thoughts.

(BTW, the most disturbing thing about the "picture" of Jesus with the Barrett 50 isn't the Barrett 50, but the absence of the cross. Without the cross, we are alone and without hope in the world (Ephesians 2:12). JMHO.)

Maybe a cross in one arm, and the barrett in the other.

Look at Cali..... no .50's, and no hope. lol...

I understand what you are saying.

But , how i look at it
1.Jesus already paid the price on the cross, that part is done.
2.He is not on that cross anymore.
3. I think God has a sense of humor.

Did you mean portrait? I don't think anyone's got a picture of him.

I'll say "The Last Supper" by DaVinci

Saab turbo ad back in the 90's always made me chuckle .

Some say it is Mary Magdaline, others say it is just the way DaVinci drew "men of honor" for that time period. Meaning that "men of honor" received more femine looking features to make them stand out more.

Or something like that..............

The most moving sculpture....
Shows His humanity, his suffering and His sacrafice for us all.


PS-In the Last Supper, the woman is Jesus' mother. Davinci's wanted to convey His mother's love for Him by being present at His last meal. It is said the artist only wanted to add his own idea of what it might have been like. Read it in college in art history. Will see if I can find a link on the net somewhere if anyone is interested.

There are many artist's depictions of the Last Supper. Davinci is just one. Here is another by Pinacoteca Nazionale, Siena. No woman is included.

There is a picture at Church that I really like.

It's a modern painting of Jesus laughing.

A "I just heard a darn funny joke, toss your head back and let out a good laugh" laugh.

I always thought Jesus would have liked a good joke. He loved to visit people and make others happy.

For some reason however, it pisses a lot of the regualr members off. I guess it's better to picture Jesus nailed to the Cross rather than enjoying life.

Christ is showing us an example of poor trigger discipline, however I think it
can be excused this one time.

At Forest Lawn, Glendale CA there is a wonderful sculpture of Jesus talking with children, and they are all smiling..He is laughing.

One of the nicest pieces of three dimensional art I've ever seen :)
