Jesus Christ’s humble birth brings the greatest joy. The world received a savior and would never be the same.
The sheep are present in this picture of Christ to remind us of that humble start among the animals.
LIGHT OF THE WORLD
The light that shines down on Christ is a symbol of the light that Christ will bring to the world. This can also bring us to see the star that shone as a sign from the heavens that Jesus Christ was born.
Mary and Joseph with baby Jesus may be the most familiar scene of Christ for the world. Christmas celebrates the moment Christ came to Earth as a baby. Yongsung Kim’s depiction of that scene is one of light and kindness. The gentle sheep and the soft faces bring us to Christ.
The word Immanuel is Hebrew and means, God is with Us. The heavens opened the night that Jesus Christ was born. Christ came to Earth to lay among the animals and then lead us as a shepherd to his flock.
Kim paints the sheep in Immanuel to not only show where Christ was born but to tell of Christ’s plan to lead us as our shepherd.
A BEAUTIFUL REMINDER
The birth of Jesus Christ is an event remembered around the world by millions. This reminder of that moment is the perfect addition to a home in need of peace and joy.
