2014 Christmas Sermon Art: Immanuel

Originally posted on our church site, here are the Christmas designs I made for 2014.

Notes: This image is a combination of a few real photographs – (1), the “Christmas Tree Cluster” galaxy in the sky; (2), the Aurora Borealis. I merely doctored up what God’s already made. He’s a much better artist than I.

Bible verses

Matthew 1:23, 28:18-20 (Our Christmas sermon)

1:23 “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”–which means, “God with us.”

28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

(Notes: I wanted to make something that looked both like Jesus’ birth AND ascension – that massive star does just the thing.)

Psalm 19:1

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
