Cleansing the Temple
24 x 18, Acrylic on Canvas, James Bennett, 2019

Jesus cleansing the temple
  • This is a semi-abstract painting which is composed of images from the story of Jesus upsetting the tables of the money-changers who were in the temple courtyard..
  • There are images of doves, coins, a chalice, and a menorah -- all items used in worship in the temple.
  • The dark brown slats represent pieces of broken tables.
  • There are flowing, wavy strands that begin in the upper right corner and cross the painting diagonally. They represent the whip that Jesus is said to have used.
  • The edge of the painted image appears to have a deckle edge like handmade paper.
