Liz Lemon Swindle discusses two of her paintings that have special meaning during the Easter Season.
“I Am The Resurrection”
This is the story of Lazarus. Martha tells the Lord he is too late and her brother has already died. Christ reassures her that her brother will rise again. She replies, “I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” With perfect clarity he declares, “I am the resurrection.” – John11
This is a picture of the apostles running to the tomb where Christ was buried.
When Mary came to the tomb, she found the stone rolled away and the tomb empty. She ran to the disciples crying, “They have taken away the Lord…and we know not where they have laid him” (John 20:2). Peter and John immediately ran to the tomb.
What did they think as they ran? Were they simply curious to see for themselves? Did they fear, like Mary, that their enemies had stolen the body? Or did they remember His promise, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up”?
These are some of the things that Liz considers and contemplates when creating a picture.
