The Light of the World
By William Holman Hunt
The idea of showing Jesus knocking on the door is taken from a passage in the book of Revelation.
“Listen! I am standing at the door knocking. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you and you with me.” Revelation chapter 3 verse 20.
Here are few questions you might like to think about whilst looking at the picture and thinking about the verse from Revelation.
What do you think the room looks like on the other side of the door?
Do you think the door will be opened?
How does Jesus feel standing there?
Does the person inside know that it is Jesus outside?
What will Jesus want to do if and when he is invited inside?
How will that feel to the person inside?
How does the painting make you feel?
Holman Hunt said that working on the life size version of his painting had made him become a Christian.
