Jyoti Sahi (Indian, 1944–), “Entry into Jerusalem,” 2012. Oil and acrylic on canvas.

The Indian artist Jyoti Sahi started this painting after being in Jerusalem for the first time, for a meeting on art and peace for the Abrahamic faiths. He shared after completing this canvas that it is all about Jesus entering the human heart. I love how busy the scene is … just as full as are our hearts, and as I imagine the first ‘Palm Sunday’.

The crowds shout ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord’. But who exactly is this ‘one’? Did Jesus anticipate their confusion and this question in the scene just prior, his healing of blind Bartimaeus (Mark 10: 46-Mark 11:11)? Join us for an hour with music of praise, prayers of the heart, and exploration of Holy Scripture.
