“The Land Jesus Knew, Part 2,” Ensign, Jan. 1983, 33
The Land Jesus Knew, Part 2
The Ensign continues with Part 2 of a five-part series featuring paintings and photographs of sites and events associated with the life of the Lord Jesus Christ. This month we focus on the beginning of his ministry—from his arrival in Galilee after his baptism and temptation in the wilderness to the ordination of the Twelve Apostles.
The paintings are by Harry Anderson, noted living American illustrator of the life of Christ, and by David Roberts, a British artist who visited the Holy Land in 1839–1842 and produced many drawings and lithographs of scenes there. Roberts’ work, though romanticized in aspects, offers a rare view of what the Holy Land might have looked like before the modernization of the twentieth century.
Some of Harry Anderson’s paintings are printed by courtesy of the Church; others are printed courtesy of the Pacific Press Publishing Association, for whom Mr. Anderson has painted many illustrations.
The photography is from Church Educational System (CES) photographers.
