Painting Title:- Carrying the Cross
Text: John 19 v 17
Turner has taken an audacious gamble by painting Jesus as relaxed and sauntering
on his way to crucifixion. One could almost hear Jesus whistling as he carries
his light - weight cross.
Turner does not deny the violence and horror of the event but peers through
it to the infinite love that underwent suffering and death freely. Jesus
kingship is not triumphalistic but nonetheless real.
