My greatest discovery of 2009... so far!



Okay, so I was doing a Google image search of The Last Supper when I stumbles across this one. It seems to be someone who loves Lego and is religious. What this equals is something delightfully... hmmm... I was going to say irreverrent, but maybe that's the way I see it because I'm an athiest (can it be irreverrent if that wasn't the publisher's intention?). If you are religious maybe you don't see it the same as me. But Jesus, I bloody love this, let me know how you see it.


I've shared a couple of gems here, be sure to check the Brick Testament site for more.





*I was in tears of laughter when I saw this one!

Hey Simon you know where I stand on the religious debate...but I still have a sense of humor....these are awesome....very cute...I am going to check out the site!

Just curious...why were you googling the last supper? I have a book on artists impressions of the last supper dating back to the 14th century...you can borrow it if you like.

Hey Jess, I was looking at The Last Supper because I read the DaVinci Code and was curious to see what it looked like.

In the Dan Brown book, the DaVinci Code one of the main characters points out to someone that each disciple has his own cup - discounting the idea that they all drank from the 'Holy Grail'. What I found on my image search was interesting insofar as there were a different versions of what appeared to be the same picture of the Last Supper. In some they all have there own cup, in others only JC has one. I'm not going to pretened that that means anything at all, but it is interesting I think.

The book I have focuses on the same theme, that there are many different versions of the same scene, depending on the persons interpretation of scripture. Im not sure that there is anything to this either apart from a matter of perception when reading the Bible.

I do know that Dan Brown has clearly stated that his book was never intended to be fact though...that he wrote it from a fiction point of view...smart boy to choose this as his subject...it has done amazing things for his career with all the controversy he has created.

Simon, the hard thing with walking with God is you have to have faith...
Faith is not based on complete knowledge...otherwise it wouldnt be faith...thats the hard thing for all of us to come to terms with...thats the crux of entering into relationship with God.
