The Many Names and Faces of Jesus



Painting of Christ. By Artist Chris Young.


I love that title. I have secretly wanted a board just for images of Jesus for a long time. So I went a little crazy today and pinned over 500 images, neglecting writing, crocheting, cleaning… but I had a blessed time. It was fun. Here are a few of my favorites…if I can manage to pick just a few images and then I will send you to Pinterest itself if you are hungry for more.
