Salvation Through the Ark—32 x 54 in.
Noah and all who were with him were saved in the ark through the waters of the flood. We, too, are saved through our ark, Christ, by the waters of baptism. The dove appears in both instances. It brings the olive leaf to Noah--symbolizing new life has begun. As Jesus was coming out of the waters of the River Jordan the Spirit descended on Him like a dove. In Him we have New life. In these 3 paintings--“Shadow and the Substance”, “Serpents in the Wilderness" and “Salvation through the Ark”, I have incorporated the Shadow from the Hebrew Testament and the fulfillment in the Greek Testament.
