Jesus as envisioned in the Book of Revelation

David Johnson, Regina


This is a highly unusual depiction of Jesus Christ, based on the description of the End Time in the Book of Revelation. A white-haired but youthful Christ, as Judge, sits on a throne, a sword in his left hand and seven stars in his right. At his feet a rainbow curves over a chained Serpent, a representation of Satan, defeated by Christ.

"... and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters; He had in His right hand seven stars . . ."
Revelation 1:12-18
