Jesus has many images in the Christian Bible, but the best one is definitely the one of Him getting His revelation from the Angel Gabriel. Most people have probably seen this image at least once. But most likely it is one of the first images they have and most likely have a picture in their mind of the last meal Jesus had with the disciples. They can see the image of a man that looked like Jesus and they have this mental image of what Jesus would have looked like if He were alive today. This is why it is so powerful and it is one of the reasons people can fall in love with Him.
The other thing that impressed even the skeptics that early Christians were crazy about Him was that He did not die on the cross. Many scoffed at this image, but it was the truth. When you read about the life of Jesus, you learn that he went to the cross many times and did not die once. There are some accounts where the tomb was empty, yet he lived. This is more evidence that he really did live and that He loved the church.
The stone that rolled away from the grave was actually a rock. This is important because it reveals that Jesus was not the son of God, as some of his followers had thought. Instead he was a young child. His mother Mary did not die in childbirth and was simply smitten by a spirit that she had never been aware of. She must have sensed that something was different and that she should do something to help her son.
We are all familiar with the Last Supper. Jesus and His disciples sat around a table after the Crucifixion. While they were eating, something incredible happened. Suddenly, out of the corner of their mouths came the sounds of Yes and No. It was the voice of Jesus speaking to them and saying, “Behold, I have given you until now, what you ask. Only because I am love, I am the one that love you.”
Images of Jesus carrying two baskets of fruit were found on early Church coins. These images often portrayed two baskets, but one was empty. The empty basket can be seen as symbolic, because he was choosing to live with them. This may be the reason why many of the early Christians did not carry cash.
One of the most well known images of Jesus was the crucifix. This became especially famous after the capture of Him by the enemy and the subsequent death of His life. The stone that was rolled away from the grave was replaced by a large cross. The image was immediately changed to a different image.
Other images of Jesus show Him with two people. Some pictures show Him holding two children. These two images, together with the stone that rolled away from the grave, formed the basis for the message “two people love different things”. When these two images were combined with the message that Jesus loves us and that he wants us to come to earth and be his friend, the picture started to take shape.
Today, many Christian churches display images of Jesus that include the love messages. Many of these images include the two people of Christ, as well as angels. Some images also have the baby Jesus and the serpent, which was a part of the ancient mystery religion of Israel.
While there is no way to know if the Christian church adopted these images of Jesus as their own or if they were influenced by the pagans, it is interesting to note that the two images are shown together. There are many other images of Jesus, one of which depicts the man with a cross over his heart. This was a common symbol in ancient times. Another shows a man being tossed on his back, a common scene depicted in many paintings of Jesus. The message here is that the two people involved in this meeting, Jesus and God, are inseparable.
The meaning behind the images of Jesus and two people cannot be denied. No matter how much we might try, it is impossible to deny that there is some truth to the message that comes with these images. The two people, Jesus and God, are indeed seen as two separate entities by many Christians. However, this separation does not make any difference in the message that is relayed.
It can be concluded that the popularity of the Jesus and two people image is tied into Christian culture more than it is tied to actual Christian beliefs. These images provide an escape route from the reality of mortality that most Christians are confronted with. They provide a way to connect with someone who is actually able to walk with God, who understands what it means to have love in one's heart, and who was, is, and will be a loving God. Even though the majority of Christians do not accept Jesus as the Son of God, it seems that they will allow him to have a place of honor among the Christian community.
