Impressions of Isaiah

Josh Condon, a former student of mine, painted this impression of Isaiah's royal theology as a final project for my Isaiah class. He explained that he had been wanting to try painting for a while, and our class finally gave him the opportunity to put brush to canvas. The class was fascinated by the results, and saw quite a bit of Isaiah's theology in Josh's image. One of the most obvious theological themes in the painting is the idea of king/messiah as God's representative image of God on earth, funneling divine blessings down to us from the beyond.
