Something in the Bible that I've always found interesting is that a lion is used to describe both Jesus AND Satan. However, while in Satan's case, it is refering to how a lion stalks it's prey, waiting to strike; with Jesus, it's about his majesty and his authority. The lion is a symbol of power and authority as well as majesty and beauty!
But...I digress.
A very nice picture! I really like it!

I especially like Luke 12:24 "Consider the ravens: They neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than birds?"

I like that one particularly because this verse is my family moto and the origin of our last name.

that's sweet!
It's cool too, that God used ravens to feed Elijah when he was in the wilderness running away for his life.

God has promised to take care of His children, through every problem or danger that comes their way.. that verse is a beautiful promise we can hold on to when we feel worried too.

You actually made Jesus look Middle-Eastern! I've always wanted to see more pictures of Jesus looking more like his actual ethinicity.

Absolutely beautiful. :love: I didn't know that lions were a symbol of Jesus. Maybe that is why Aslan, the great lion in the Narnia Chronicles, was a lion. =)

Anyway, beautiful job on this; I love the colors and brush-strokes you used. <3
