Four Paintings – The Taking of Christ

Four Paintings – The Taking of Christ

Today, something a little different. We’ll intersperse our regular series over the next 12 months with an occasional look at a painting, discovering how great artists have illuminated the story of Jesus. We begin with ‘The Taking of Christ’ by Caravaggio. Tim Cole is our guide.

Our current series on the church, ‘Why Gather?’, resumes next week.
