Overview

According to the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John from the King James Bible.

The story of Christ's death on the cross and his resurrection three days later is the central drama of Christianity. Gennady Spirin elegantly depicts the events leading up to and following the crucifixion, from Christ's entry into Jerusalem to the Last Supper to the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples. In the tradition of the great masters before him, Mr. Spirin pays close attention to symbolic and religious detail. He portrays Jesus as the light that came into a somber world of sin, and ends the book with the promise of the resurrection.

Gennady Spirin has been described in the Boston Globe as an artist who "truly represents the picture book as an object of art." Drawing on his Orthodox Christian faith, he delivers a work of dignity and beauty.

Excerpt


Matthew
21:1-9


And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethpage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,

    Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.

    And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them, and straightway he will send them.

    All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

    Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek. and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

    And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

    And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.

    And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.

    And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.


Matthew
21:10-13


    And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

    And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

    And Jesus went into the temple of God,and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves.

    And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.


Matthew
21:14-16


    And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

    And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased.

    And said unto him. Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them. Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?


Matthew
26:20-28


    Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.

    And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.

    And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?

    And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.

    The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It had been good for that man if he had not been born.

    Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.

    And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, take, eat; this is my body.

    And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

    For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
