Last term I taught Bible Knowledge to the Form III students. We were studying the Gospel of Luke. So I divided the class into groups of four, handed each group two passages from Luke’s Gospel and two sheets of brown parcel paper. I asked them to illustrate the passages. Well, was I delighted to discover the artists in our midst!

In this photo you’ll see Faraja’s illustrations. The picture on the top illustrates the story of the paralyzed man in Luke 5:18-20,24:
“And behold, men were bringing on a bed a man who was paralyzed, and they sought to bring him in and lay him before Jesus; but finding no way to bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down with his bed through the tiles into the midst before Jesus. And when he saw their faith he said, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” … “I say to you, rise, take up your bed and go home.”

The two lower pictures illustrate the story of the ten lepers in Luke 17:12-16:
“And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance and lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks.”

I love these two illustrations that Faraja did. Aren't they beautiful?

If you would like to see the rest of the students’ illustrations, come visit our library. The once bare walls are plastered with the students’ artwork now! And as the Bulletin Board/Art club moderator, I’m sure I will be discovering more and more of the students' artistic talents. So stay tuned for the opening of our Art Gallery!
