Chipul Mantuitorului/ The face of Jesus Christ


 E greu sa pictezi un chip pe care nu l-ai vazut niciodata. Privirea blanda, fruntea inalta, sprancenele frumos arcuite si o gura zambind delicat sunt niste caracteristici care iti transmit ceva. Dar ce ne facem cu stereotipurile? Ce ne facem cand viata ne aduce in cale oameni pe care ii judecam dupa aparente, iar apoi ne dam seama ca am judecat gresit? Cum sa pictezi chipul unui Om cum a fost Hristos? Sunt cateva marturii despre infatisarea lui, dar nu de ajuns sa-ti poti face o imagine intreaga.
Am vazut filme si reprezentari ale lui Iisus. Unele mi-au placut, altele m-au lasat rece. Ma intreb daca nu cumva ni-L imaginam fiecare, raportandu-ne la ce e mai bun in noi. Poate ca viata ne invata chipul lui Hristos, in functie de cum traim, ce patim si ce oameni intalnim.

It's hard to recreate a face you've never seen. A gentle expression, a broad forehead, nicely shaped eyebrows and a delicate smile are certain characteristics. But what about stereotypes? What about when life gives us appearances that we judge poorly? How can one paint the face of a Man like Jesus? There's some testimony regarding His looks, but still not enough.
I've seen some movies and different representations of Christ. Some pleased me, some didn't. I wonder if His face is shaped by each one of us, according to our own life and experiences.
