Come to me ....
Inspirational for this woodcut for me was a stone relief in a capital from the 12th Century in the church of Saint Marie Madeleine in Vezelay.
The stone relief depicts Jesus as he brings Jude home. He wears it on his shoulders Judas as Jesus the Lamb in the famous portrait of the good shepherd.
In Psalm 23 we get a great promise from God - and yet there may be situations in one's life where it can be difficult to believe this promise.
The confidence that exudes the image of Jesus with the dead Judas, and the hope of which speaks of Psalm 23, were for me incentive to represent these two truths artistic.
The Knotenlöserin worked after picture Knotenlöserin in St. Peter am Perlach in Augsburg.

For the kingdom of God is within you.

Houses of founding fathers
"Watchman, what of the night?" One question that needs to be put in different situations of the person, a society, our church.
The consolation is the promise of "It's the morning, but it is still night."
The desperate caller is in the number of the sons of Israel. In the background the house of the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Opposite them is the house of their wives, Sarah, Rebecca and Rachel and Leah.
Then the house of God Ambassador Moses comes. Then the house of the prophets Elijah and Isaiah. At the end of the road (the very front right) the house of the offspring of David with Mary and Joseph and then the, the reputation of Edom was, Jesus.
