The St. John's Bible-Messianic Predictions

Messianic Predictions, 2005
Isaiah 10:4-32 
Thomas Ingmire
Scribes: poetry- Brian Simpson- text- Sue Hufton
Vellum with ink, paint and gold

"The promise of the Messiah is found
 throughout the books of the Prophets, 
and embodies God's covenant
 with the people of Israel.
 According to the prophetic texts, 
the Messiah is a king that God 
will send to restore his broken relationship
 with his people, bear the sins of mankind
 and end all suffering. 
The many titles of the Messiah, 
including King of Kings, Prince of Peace, 
and Immanuel, meaning "God is with us"
 appear on this folio as soaring words
 of jubilation in gleaming gold and jewel-like colors."

I like how the Hallelujah filters though
all the promises.
A reminder that in all of our days
there is an Hallelujah.
