One of the
wonders of art today around the world, is we get to see how different cultures
view the coming of Christ. “Behold, I
bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to ALLthe people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is
Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10)
artist tries to convey what is in his/her heart as a message to us, they are
not usually worried about historical accuracy, but rather how does the art
speak to people here and now.
For Christmas week we
present some contemporary portrayals of the Nativity which open up to us the fact that Jesus Christ was born
for all people of all ages.
