The illumination by Suzanne Moore.
"The locust devoured your fig trees and your olive trees; yet you did not return to me, says the Lord."
"Come to me, you who desire me, and eat your fill of my fruits."
"Like cassia and camel's thorn I gave forth perfume, and like choice myrrh I spread my fragrance." The final illumination in Sirach is by Suzanne Moore. The Art Of The Saint John's Bible - Susan Sink
This full page illustration is by Thomas Ingmire. "For unto us a child is born." This illumination is crowned with Hallelujahs! You can almost see the trumpets raised and blasting with the announcement." The Art Of The Saint John's Bibel - Susan Sink
This illumination, a colorful wall of words, is the comfort we have waited for. Thomas Ingmire has rested the book of Job on Revelation 21:4. Referring to that place beyond human suffering that we cannot grasp but that we know awaits us. "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things has passed away." The Art Of The Saint John's Bible - Susan Sink
The beauty of the pages of the Bible that we viewed last week took my breath away. It was a blessed experience to be there and see them. http://www.saintjohnsbible.org/
