‘They offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it. 
And they crucified him. Dividing up his clothes, they cast lots to see what each would get.’ Mark 15 verse 23-24

Reflecting on the painting and
Your Journey through life

  1. To be exposed physically, emotionally or intellectually can leave us feeling vulnerable and humiliated.
  2. Take a moment to imagine Jesus, yourself, a loved one, or others as the faceless figure in the painting – someone who has been laid bare. Who is in the painting for you? What does it make you think or feel?

Quotations to inspire you on
Your Journey

  1. ‘Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I shall return. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.’ Job 1:21
  2. ‘It takes strength to show vulnerability.’ Miranda Lambert
  3. ‘The strangest thing happens when, what we have most wanted to conceal is brought into the open, we don’t die. Instead, we often begin to heal.’ J. Ortberg

Biblical Wisdom to support you
on Your Journey

‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’ Parable of The Sheep and Goats
