The Journey Station 7

Jesus falls for the second time
(a moral fall)

‘Jesus returned and found his disciples sleeping. He said to Peter, “Couldn’t you stay awake with me even for one hour? Keep watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Mark 14 37-38

Reflecting on the painting and
Your Journey through life

  1. The Fall of Adam and Eve is representative of the moral failure of all human beings; the consequences or ‘fall-out’ of sin can be witnessed everywhere.
  2. Jesus was ‘without sin’, so take a moment to imagine someone else as the faceless figure in the painting – someone who has fallen from grace. Who is in the painting for you? What does it make you think or feel?

Biblical Wisdom to support you
on Your Journey

‘The son said, ‘I will go home to my father and say, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son.” ‘So he returned home to his father, but while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him. “This son of mine was lost, but now he is found.’” The Lost Son, Luke 15
