Tikkun Zyor / תיקון ציור Painting Repair - Jewish Jesus Exhibit, NY

Painting Repair ... Tikkun Zyor / תיקון ציור

Christ and the Doctors, or Yeshua with the Teachers in Judea, 8 AD
Repainting : A quick study from Albrecht Durer's "Christ among the Doctors"dating to 1506, now in the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, Spain. Based on Luke 2: 46-50 ..... "After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. 47 Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48 When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”
49 “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” 50 But they did not understand what he was saying to them."

  1. Hi, I was interested in the title of your blog. I've come to believe that Luke 17:21 shouldn't be translated "within you," but "among you" or "in your midst" instead. I don't believe Jesus was pointing to some personal inward reality at all. He was actually speaking directly to Pharisees in that section of Scripture and I'm pretty certain that He wouldn't have told a group of those guys that they should be encouraged because "the kingdom of God is in/within you." The reality was that they were looking for the kingdom to arrive in great array, with the Messiah sweeping in and clearing house of the Gentile rulers. Well, the reality was that the King Himself was in their midst.
