blood of His cross

For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross.

Colossians 1:19-20


I wanted to share this picture of Søren Kierkegaard, my all time favourite:

Marstrand’s drawing from 1870

It is by Wilhelm Marstrand (1810-73).

“The same evening that the news of Kierkegaard’s death spread through Copenhagen, out at the poet Johannes Fibiger’s, where he chanced to be, Marstrand made a number of loosely sketched ink drawings of Kierkegaard, from memory – one of his specialities!”

Now the dates do not match up but it is a great drawing and it exemplifies how I see Kierkegaard.
