Pilate went out again and said to them, “See, I am bringing him out to you that you may know that I find no guilt in him.” So Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, “Behold the man!” When the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, “Crucify him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Take him yourselves and crucify him, for I find no guilt in him.” — John 19:4-6 (ESV)
Ecce Homo, or, “Behold the Man”, is the most notable work of the Swiss-Italian painter, Antonio Ciseri (1821-1891) in 1871, and is the picture I chose to use in the banner displayed at the top of our main website, and is a particular favorite of mine. The painting depicts Jesus before the Roman governor Pilate as he gestures towards Jesus proclaiming to the crowd that he has found no fault in him.
Here at TPE we cover a broad spectrum of topics such as evolution, big-bang cosmology, philosophy, history, archaeology, worldview issues, and many more, but what it all boils down to is, “Who is Jesus?” And the only possible answers to that question are the he was either insane, made up, a liar, or God incarnate.
Now you can show your support and appreciation for The Poached Egg with this beautiful poster print of Ecce Homo to display in your home or office, and here are four reasons why you should do so:
- It’s a beautiful piece of art that reminds us of who Jesus is and what he’s done for us.
- The Poached Egg receives a small commission for each one sold which helps us financially. Our continued presence and growth depends on the financial support of people like you (you can donate directly by becoming a monthly partner or with a special gift here).
- It’s a great conversation starter. People will inevitably ask you about it, which could open the door to evangelistic conversations or just spreading the word about The Poached Egg and apologetics in general.
- At $13.50, it’s pretty much a bargain (you can add a frame when you order for an additional cost or buy a frame separately—I got a frame for mine at Hobby Lobby for about $15).
