I am christian so I thank you for the art.

This has been one of my favorite retellings of the life of Jesus and television events since I saw it when it first aired in 1977. What a cast: Robert Powell as Jesus; Olivia Hussey as Mary; Michael York as John the Baptist; Anne Bancroft as Mary Magdalene ("Mrs. Robinson" from "The Graduate"); Sir Laurence Olivier as Nicodemus; Anthony Quinn as Caiaphas; Rod Steiger as Pilate; and a pre-"Lord of the Rings" Ian Holm as the scribe Zerah... among others; directed by Franco Zeffirelli (who also directed Olivia Hussey and Michael York, as Juliet and Tybalt, respectively, in the 1968 film of "Romeo and Juliet"). 

Most everyone knows John 3:16; however, we can't forget John 3:17, which reminds us that God did not send His son into the world to condemn men's souls, but to save them.

Thank you for sharing this! And in advance: Happy Resurrection Sunday (yes, I realize it's nearly two months away)!

I was just wondering did you have to ask permission from the creators of the movie to draw this picture btw I've seen this exact copy floating around the internet on several websites. Though their copies didn't have the rough canvas paper look. I've drawn one myself but am taking steps before I publish it.
