The Crucifixion: The Louvre Museum

My trip to the Louvre Museum in October 2019 reminded me that there are several pieces of art and a marvelous high ceiling room (and several other small rooms) dedicated to Christ’s crucifixion.

‭‭ACTS‬ ‭4:11‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Jesus is the centre of many religious debates. My only question is why do we shudder at mentioning His name in public …if He can be displayed in public? On another note, look how He treated Judas and Peter after they betrayed and denied Him… Jesus is consistently compassionate and forgiving. Over a span of the last 50 years the most read book in the world is the Bible. According to Business Insider, the Bible far outsold any other book.

Then it was reported by Guinness World Record in 2019 that, “Although it is impossible to obtain exact figures, there is little doubt that the Bible is the world’s best-selling and most widely distributed book. A survey by the Bible Society concluded that around 2.5 billion copies were printed between 1815 and 1975, but more recent estimates put the number at more than 5 billion. According to Worldometers, the earth’s population is 7.7 billion, which has grown 2 billion since 2017 (also see World Bank).

The Bible has reached approximately 2/3 of the world’s population 🙃

The Bible preserves the teachings of Jesus‘s words of wisdom. These words are valid even after two thousand years. Jesus spoke of love, forgiveness, and truth, and not of violence, fanaticism, or revenge. He came to replace religiosity with spirituality, urging His followers to tread the path of holiness.

For the message of the cross is foolishness [absurd and illogical] to those who are perishing and spiritually dead [because they reject it], but to us who are being saved [by God’s grace] it is [the manifestation of] the power of God.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:18‬ ‭AMP‬‬

I took all of the pictures and videos above, with my iPhone XS Max, at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France, October 2019
