I am always astounded in art how images we have seen over and over again, some a thousand years old, such as the Crucifixion, can be changed to inspire us anew, with form and colors.

This Holy Week I present some very modern art depicting the Passion of Christ, some you may like, others maybe not, but all are thought provoking.


Christ's Entry into Jerusalem- Norman Adams  (British- d. 2005)

As he rode along, the people were spreading their cloaks on the road;
and now as he was approaching the slope of the Mount of Olives,  the whole multitude of his disciples began to praise God aloud with joy for all the mighty deeds they had seen. They proclaimed:
“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord. Peace in heaven and glory in the highest.” LK.19
