Rembrant’s Adoration of the Magi

magiThis is Rembrant’s depiction of the Adoration of the Magi.  I find it interesting that since the beginning of Christianity wise men have wanted to get to know Jesus.  Even today wise men and religious leaders (Buddha, Mohammed, Ghandi etc etc etc) are interested in the words of and about Jesus.  There is something about this man that was captivating from the beginning.  Consider the fact that since its collection into a single work the Bible is the most read book throughout history and Jesus is it’s central character.  Regardless of your opinion of Christians or religion in general, you would join the ranks of many wise people by investigating the story of Jesus.

  1. I am very agnostic, to say the least (of Christian cultural heritage) and I think one cannot, in earnest, deny the existence and the influence of Jesus, as a prophet and a historical figure. Your post is very interesting and I love Rembrandt!
