Originally posted by AThousandYoung Do you read the Bible thinking about what the writer attributes to God instead of what God did or said?
If not, why do you look at this painting with a more critical mind than you do the Bible?
the bible is what the writer attributes to god. sometimes that and what god really said is the same. (coincidence). but the former is always true. the bible is in most part(perhaps all) people experiencing god in a particular way. which is exactly what rembrandt did.
maybe the j man was pissed. but nothing makes rembrandt a witness to the event.
