Christian Art Lesson Ten
For todays lesson, the participants were asked to seek God for something to bring to share about Zion.
We shared different things including how the word Zion has been used in different ways throughout history. The word is used to name a physical place, a homeland, a spiritual place, and a place to come, where the throne of Christ is.
"You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm ... But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel” (Hebrews 12:22-24).
"And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus" (Ephesians 2:6).
“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame” (1 Peter 2:6).
"Now it will come about that in the last days the mountain of the house of the LORD will be established as the head of the mountains, and will be raised/exalted above the hills and every nation will flow into it" (Isaiah 2:2).
The Hebrew letter zion, originally was an image of a plough.
Some of the participants unfinished seascapes.
