ANGELA & BRIAN

LIFE & DEATH OF JESUS ~ ANGELA & BRIAN ~ A DODECET



 

JESUS ON THE CROSS ~ SALVADOR DALI ~ 1951

 

JUDGEMENT DAY ~ BILLIONS STOOD BEFORE GODS THRONE !

What does GOD know ~ and how can He be our Judge ?

Asked a TEEN ~ who drew back her sleeve to reveal 

A tattooed number from AUSWITZCH ~ WE SUFFERED !

What 'bout me said a Negro ~ showing

A rope burn ~ lynched 'cos I was BLACK !

A Pregnant School Girl said ~ Why should I suffer ?

It wasnt my fault ~ I am innocent !

 

Each had their complaint ~ for what theyd suffered

Collectively they presented their case .......

Before GOD could judge ....... He must endure !

Let Him be born on Earth ~ Born as a JEW

Let the legitimacy of His Birth .......

Be doubtful ~ Give Him a difficult job ~ so

His Parents will think Him demented !  Let

Him be betrayed by his closest Friends !

 

Let Him face false charges ~ be condemned ~ and

Tortured ! Let him DIE ~ NAILED TO A CROSS 

Feeling forsaken !  THERE WAS SILENCE ~ THEY

REALISED ~ JESUS HAD PAID HIS SENTENCE !

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love A & B 🧡🧡🧡

      Hello Brian and Angela,

      Thank you for this interesting perspective on the crucifixion of Jesus.

      Keep writing FineB.

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        Thanks FINE ! Yes it is awesome ~ Our fave paithing of the CRUCIFIXION. In 1952 it was catalogued for £12000 and Glasgow Corporation (canny Scots) bought it for £8200 ! It is now worth millions. The Spanish Government offered £4 millon to buy it back for Spain ! Pleased you enjoyed the Poem ~ Pic ~ and Praise ~
        Yours ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡

        This is definately one of my favorite pieces I have ever heard. This is truely a masterpiece in my book. Also, I have a painting (not an original) of Christ's crucifixion with marry watching by Salvador Dali.
        Keep writing.
        Persistence is key.

          Dali is probably my favourite artist of them all and I've a special trip to Glasgow just to see this painting - and so worth the effort - And another fine write to accompany it .

          • Michael Edwards

            Ooops - Should have said: 'I've made a special trip...'

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              Thanks UNCLE MIKE ~ Yes voted as Scotlands favourite Painting 2006 ~ It is magnificent and very moving ! Glasgow bought it for £8,200 in 1952 ! Later the Spanish Government offered £4 million to buy it back but Glasgow said no ! Pleased you liked the DODECET. A Sonnet is too short for such a topic !

              A fine write B&A. 'Suffering' is, or can be, a stumbling block' to belief. Though it's more than just an 'old chestnut'.

              • ANGELA & BRIAN

                THANKS UNCLE STEVE ~ Pleased you enjoyed the POEM ~ PIC & PRAISE ! Go to BALIOL COLLEGE ~ OXFORD ~ stand on the bronze cross where LATIMER & RIDLEY were burnt at the stake for their FAITH ~ Feel the Heat and yiou will appreciate what REAL Sufering for CHRIST entails !

                • orchidee

                  Thanks B&A. I have been there. Seems a bit spooky to stand on the actual spot an feel the heat. Erm, see you later then, if I don't go up in a puff of smoke and combust! Was it Cranmer too, same place? Some have a mini-pilgrimage there, ever March 21st - Cranmer's anniversary; or October 16th for Ridley and Latimer.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Super write. That Salvibpdor Dali crucifiction is the most powerful of all paintings of that type.

                  • ANGELA & BRIAN

                    Thanks UNCLE ANDY ~ Pleased you enjoyed it ! That Painting is awesome ! DALI got the idea from a 16th C Artist St John of the Cross ~ which explains why he called it CRUCIFIXION St John of the Cross. Bought by Glasgow for £8,200 now (and rightly so !) worth MILLIONS. Scotlands most popular painting !
                    Blessings & Love to You & Joyce ~
