The Sacrifice

Sunday, April 28 2013 Here comes new mural in St. John Church in Euless: it is The Sacrifice of Melchisedec, Abel and Abraham. The main idea was to show three most important Sacrifices of the Old Testament. Each one of them were “proto-types” of the ultimate Sacrifice of Christ. First, He was a Priest by the order of Melchisedec. Second, being the Son of God, as Isaac was a first-born son of Abraham, He was crucified willingly, and third, He was judged to death unjustly like Abel was killed by his brother without guilt…

I made one picture at the end of each day of the work, starting from the color sketch you can see first, and up to the finished mural you can see last -all work progress day-by-day.
