Follow Me – Graphite Painting

Father God on Cross

Copyright 2009

He is the image of the invisible God…
Colossians 1:15

Jesus said,

“He who hath seen Me hath seen the Father.”
John 14:9

The face of God the Father gazes upon the viewer from the body of Jesus Christ, the Son.

Jesus also said,

“The Son can do nothing by himself;
he can do only what he sees his Father doing,
because whatever the Father does, the Son also does.”
John 5:19

Therefore, in this picture we see Father God in the form of Jesus Christ giving His life on the cross for us.

His grandfatherly face hints of a smile, and He seems to be bidding the viewer,

“Come, follow me”
