Christ’s Entry Into Jerusalem, Jean-Hippolyte Flandrin, ARSH 1842-48, Church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris
Zoom in on this fresco of Christ entering Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Look at the faces. Look at the people in the crowd. Look at the slack-jawed awe, and for some of them, fear – for example the man whose head is immediately to the right of the she-ass’ forehead – that dude is SCARED. And so should we all be.
So. Should. We. All. Be.
For the Lord is high, terrible: a great king over all the earth.
Quoniam Dominus excelsus, terribilis, rex magnus super omnem terram.
-Psalm 46: 3
