The Boy Christ in the Temple
24 x 18, Acrylic on Canvas, James Bennett, 2019

Boy Jesus in the temple
  • The boy Jesus, twelve years old, is depicted inside an ancient labyrinth.
  • The labyrinth is a geometric design with an aged patina. It symbolizes the centuries-old, ancient Jewish religion, which in many ways had grown cold and artificial because of its legalistic focus on obeying laws.
  • The silhouette of the boy is bright and radiant. It symbolizes God as a living human. He is warm and expressive.
  • The writing at the top is Greek and states that the teachers were amazed at his questions and answers.
