Missional Leadership Pictorial

Today, Good Friday, Christian Today web link provided a slide show of pictures and paintings of the Last Supper. The one below, by Rembrant titled, Ich Habe Euch Ein Beispiel Gegeben, 1655 is my favorite. 4_41.jpg

The caption below the picture reads; “The title of this sparse yet dramatic sketch is translated, I Gave You an Example. It portrays Peter watching his Master choose to partake in this most unexpected act, some of the other disciples watch, and perhaps begin to understand what kind of life Christ is calling them to when he says, ‘Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.’ (John 13:17).”

It provides for us a wonderful pictorial of missional leadership still appropriate for a our contemporary context.
