Baptism of Jesus

The Baptism of Christ
El Greco

El Greco's paintings never fail to grab my attention. The amazing contrasts of color and black; dark and light seem to show the many sides of life. The piety of his day still shows through, but it is in contrast to the vibrancy of color and joy that also surrounds the picture.

Kind of like baptism.

How are you baptized?
Into His death.

My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased!
