We're in the middle of Holy Week. With this in mind, I decided to do a piece that's been rolling around in my head for some time. Happy Easter everyone! You may download the full resolution version if you wish, and print. Feel free to share. Just don't profit from it. ;)

Love this! I'm a music director/worship pastor. So,My images of Christ andEaster are not that impressive. This is what I'd love to do one day. Such joy to see your work.

An excellent piece of work. Never mind what superman says below. Easter is a Christian Holiday, Holy Thursday was a celebration of the Passover. Besides a lot of things may have some celebration of some old Pagan thing, but that is not what it means today and for a couple of thousand years. It is amazing how many hateful atheist the schools are churning out these days. They all have the same old tune.

They actually did the open wounds on the hands in last year's THE BIBLE miniseries. It was kind of a surprise to see that, since most Jesus biopics depict them as dark scars post-resurrection.

But for this piece of art, it works very nicely, especially with all the light spilling into the crypt.

Awesome picture, but easter is a pagan holiday that was christianized by Roman Catholics...not a real Christian Holiday, there aren't supposed to be any actually, only sabbath.

I just talked to a good friend of mine, and she used the same excuse you did, "I don't want to argue", I'm tried of hearing that, because everyone says it.

It doesn't become an argument unless you make it one, that's a defense mechanism, when ever people do not want their beliefs question, or have an actual convrsation, they retract and don't talk at all, it's kind of sad, if people can't have conversations without arguments than it's a personal problem, I don't argue, I talk. So anytime anyone says "let's talk this out" the other person automatically becomes defensive and says "I don't want to argue". Study history and there wouldn't be much to argue about, read the actual bible and there wont be anything to argue about, because they are both very clear haha.

First off, you sound obnoxious, secondly, he doesn't need some nobody fighting his battles, he is a grown man. 

So, there are two words you used that are out of context here, argue, and persuade. There is a big difference between talking/reasoning, and arguing, not to mention, you cann't persuade someone of something they already know, especially if you're afraid to talk about it. Someone who has conviction in their beliefs, is not afraid to discuss them, ever, that's why there is something called, evangelism, Christians who actually go out into the world to try and "persuade" others to believe in Christ.

But, ignorance is bliss, and usually when someone knows that what they believe is false, they will always run away when confronted by it, too scared to hear something different, because they know it would make them face the truth.

The truth, historically and biblically, Easter was never a Christian or Jewsish tradition, the early Christians didn't celebrate it, because it never became one until after the Roman government established it as a Christian holiday, pulling it from their own traditions and synchronizing it with the Christians, it was originally a Roman PAGAN holiday, which if you've read the bible, is strictly forbidden. It was a slap in the face to true Christians of that time, and just another way for the Romans to force people to participate in idol worship.

Stunning work. I'm not a church-going person, but the concept of Easter, the redemption of our souls by Jesus' emergence from the tomb still inspires me to be a better person.
