Merry Christmas 2015 and Photo of the Week 71

Merry Christmas 2015 and Photo of the Week 71
Merry Christmas everyone!  We hope that you all have a pleasant holiday with your family and friends.  Since it's also Friday and we must have a "Photo of the Week," we are combining our Christmas post with our "Photo of the Week" post.

As Jesus of Nazareth is the reason for the season, we decided to feature this beautiful photograph of the Christus statue in Salt Lake City.

This statue is a copy of the original currently located at the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen, Denmark by Bertel Thorvaldsen as completed in 1838.

This photo started out as the cover art for an award-winning original hymn.  I knew that it needed something traditional and familiar but also something a bit different as well.  A different angle was exactly what I needed to complete this cover art.

It does us good to remember the reason for which Jesus was born: namely that he would atone and die for the sins of the world and then rise from the grave on the third day.  This is why we chose this particular image for our Christmas "Photo of the Week."
