I will be showing my collage interpretation of The Way of the Cross March 29 through April 11.
One piece will be shown each day along with the scripture passage or passages that go with it. This is the project I am completing for my Creativity and Spirituality Doctor of Ministry Class at Wesley Theological Seminary.
Please do not copy or post these images in any other place without my permission.
The choice of scripture passages and translations are from Megan McKenna’s The New Stations of the Cross, based on a revision of the traditional stations of the cross by Pope John Paul II in 1991.
Jesus Is Condemned To Death By the Sanhedrin
Mark 14:55-56, 60-65
The chief priests with the whole Sanhedrin were busy soliciting testimony against Jesus that would lead to his death, but they could not find any. Many people gave false evidence against Jesus, but their stories did not agree . . . . The high priest rose to his feet before the court and began to interrogate Jesus: Have you no answer to what these men testify against you?” But Jesus remained silent; he made no reply. Once again the high priest interrogated him: ”Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?” Then Jesus answered: ”I am; and you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power and coming with the clouds of heaven.” At that the high priest tore his robes and said: ”What further need do we have of witnesses? You have heard the blasphemy. What is your verdict?” They all concurred in the verdict “guilty,” with its sentence of death. Some of them then began to spit on him. They blindfolded him and hit him, saying, “Play the prophet!” while the officers manhandled him.
