I was online yesterday looking up images of crosses. I came upon a section that contained famous artists and found one called Three Crosses by Rembrandt. It was an etching done in 1653. When I first looked at the picture, I couldn’t help but stare at the centre cross … the cross on which Jesus died. After a few moments, I looked at the crowd surrounding the foot of that cross. I was captured by the expressions on the faces of the people who could crucify Jesus, the Son of God. After a little while my eyes drifted to the edge of the painting. There is another person there almost hidden in the shadows of the etching … many art critics say that this person is actually a self portrait of Rembrandt himself. Yes Rembrandt, recognizing his own sinfulness and his own contribution in nailing Jesus to the cross.
