This is a snapshot of a painting we commissioned in the early 2000s by a Korean Christian artist who was attending Messiah’s at the time. It was a replacement of a painting I had seen but could never relocate, picturing Satan very tentatively visiting the body of our Lord in the tomb. The original had dramatically captured Satan’s sense of triumph, combined with his foreboding sense that this was not to be the last repose of the Son of God. We have always appreciated artists’ efforts at depicting portions of the Biblical narrative which are not part of our received text but are treated as though they credibly could be. For example, a favorite supplied addition was the film Barabbas starring Anthony Quinn. How fascinating to consider what course his life may have taken after his being released for his place having been taken by the Lord Jesus. There are many similar “fill-ins” we would like someday to see. For example, we’d love an ambitious but well-done painting portraying Lazarus at a post revivification dinner with his sisters, the Lord, His Apostles, and local dignitaries burning with curiosity for info concerning his experience, and perhaps a couple of Sadducees trying hard to strike a pose between utter indifference, fear of what they may learn that would shatter their worldview, and a hope that it WOULD get shattered. How about you? What fill-in might you be glad to see expressed with talent and taste??
