SACRED ART IN 100 WORDS

Jesus drives out a demon
15th century
Très Riches Heures

We are in a Gothic synagogue. The people are astounded at Christ’s teachings with authority. The authority of His words translates into action as an unclean spirit screams in despair and attempts to battle with the Son of God. Watch as Christ in a blue cloak turns towards the man garbed in soiled clothes. Radiant by the Trinitarian halo, Jesus sternly commands, ‘Be silent and come out of him.’ The man convulses while the unclean spirit tries to escape. The crowd is appalled. Truly Jesus, our teacher, is powerful in word and deed. Through this He manifest the mercy and love of God. What a great grace it is to have known this God so powerful and so good!
