The image above is from an illustrated book on the life of Jesus titled, He Was One of Us and was beautifully drawn by Dutch artist Rien Poortvliet (1932-1995). Poortvliet was an amazingly gifted draftsman, and I really like how the book's illustrations appear as if they were some drawings from the ancient past. Here Joseph and Mary are receiving visitors that want to see the infant Jesus, who was born to die on a cross and rise again so that God and sinners could be reconciled. That's how God has demonstrated His love for us! Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas, everyone!
