Art of the Day: Wednesday October 21, 2015

Saint Jude

- by Misty Benson

This week's theme: Saints

Bakers Evangelical Dictionary on BibleStudyTools.com begins it's definition of the word "Saint" this way:

  • The word "saint" is derived from a Greek verb (hagiazo) whose basic meaning is "to set apart, " "sanctify, " or "make holy."

While most of us have at least a passing acquaintance with religious saints, we have always created our own saints. Our saints range from cultural saints, to family members, to those people that we personally revere. This week EBSQ's Art of the Day presents a variety of saints as interpreted by our EBSQ artists.


Art: Saint Jude by Artist Misty Benson
My absolute, favorite new painting of mine, "Saint Jude." Obviously, this is not your grandmother's Saint! Saint Jude is the "Miraculous Saint." He is the Saint of "lost causes" and "cases despaired of."
