Watching Holy Week Unfold
with paintings by James J. Tissot of the Life and Passion of Christ, Good Friday, and the Resurrection

arranged by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson

The first part of French painter James Jacques Tissot's life was spent as a popular Impressionist painter. But when his beautiful mistress died, something happened. He turned to Christ and devoted the rest of his life to painting the Life of Christ and the Holy Land. Here are over 150 of his beautiful watercolors than span Holy Week. Why don't you meditate on Christ's love for you as you view these.
