Joyous Jesus

Love this. Part of an excellent collection of pictures of Jesus from different cultures (ht Jonny Baker).

I find I'm using stuff like this more and more: 'the Christ We Share' from USPG/CMS is a great discussion starter for small groups, getting people to choose the picture of Jesus they most relate to and talk about it. Works well both for those on the 'fringe' and people who've been Christians for ages.

  1. Certainly colourful, like a Gaugin.

    Slightly odd that all the observers are women though... makes me think of humorous captions like "Jesus makes light of walking into the wrong shower room".. etc..
