Art Students!! Did you know that the Moravians portrayed Jesus as a female?

Posted: 10/29/2012 - Have you ever thought of Jesus as a revolutionary, as fat, as a domineering old man? Everywhere Christianity spread, the image of Jesus changed to fit the image of the people who were worshipping him. Why is Jesus portrayed as a child with Mary looking down on him or Jesus looking up at Mary? Why is he wearing only a sheet in some portraits and elegant attire in others? Enroll in Global Images of Jesus and be prepared to be challenged!
