Mark 11-12 - The New King Takes His Place

After the Triumphant Entry

After the Triumphant Entry

Image – Rebecca Phillips
Mark 11:1-11

As I was reading through the story of the triumphant entry, I had this picture of the aftermath in my mind. I realised that Jesus’ welcome was short lived and soon the crowds would turn on him. If I was one of the disciples, I would probably be feeling relief at the sight of the crowds shouting hosanna! However Jesus knew what was to come and I doubt that he was lulled into a false sense of security like I would have been. My painting attempts to capture that space in-between Jesus’ welcome and Jesus’ death, and highlight the fickleness of us humans. It is in a sense, a foreboding of what was to come, even those closest to Jesus deserted him at his darkest moment.
