In contrast to the other images in our Lenten series, this work (by multiple artists) depicts a kingly Christ surrounded by all creation. This week, we reflect on Jesus' last words, "It is finished" as we celebrate the beauty (or "Ubuhle", in Zulu) of Christ's victory over death.

Bearden's painting captures both the anger and suffering in this moment on the cross and the joyfulness of Christ's victory over death and oppression. This week, we consider how Jesus' words "I am thirsty" mark both the fulfillment of Scripture and the beginning of a new Covenant, written in his blood.

In Eakins' work we see Jesus, not in a kingly or triumphant moment, but with head bowed, shrouded in shadows, and in pain. Uncomfortably realistic in its depiction of Jesus, the painting drives home the weakness and vulnerability of God on the cross. This week, we reflect on the words he cried out from the cross: “My God, why have you forsaken me?”, and consider how this moment on the cross challenges our ideas of what love and strength are.

In this etching, Rembrandt uses the visual impact of light and dark to show the contrast in Jesus' interactions with the two criminals. This week we reflect on "Paradise" as we consider the powerful depiction of forgiveness and hope amidst the frenzied activity at the foot of the cross.

In Roualt's work, we are brought close, to engage directly with Christ on the cross and focus on the relationship with Christ to his mother and his disciple, John. This week, we contemplate what it means to be part of a spiritual family as we remember John 19:26, "Woman, here is your son"

In Munch's bright colors set against a dark sky, we see a mix of human emotion - reactions to the crucifixion of Christ, the Savior. This week we consider Jesus's last words in Luke 23:34a: "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."
