"Behold Him: the One who Transforms"

Behold Him painting, the One who Transforms, Jesus holding a monarch butterfly, Mindi Oaten Art

 

"And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.  For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit."  2 Corinthians 3:18 

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!"  2 Corinthians 5:17

This painting serves as the thematic cornerstone of a forty-piece art collection titled "Behold Him: The One Who Transforms." The collection is an exploration of the transformative power of Jesus Christ, paralleling His earthly mission with the life cycle of the monarch butterfly. Each piece is a reflection on the metamorphosis we undergo through faith.

The artwork presents a pair of hands—those of Jesus—gently cradling a monarch butterfly, a visual metaphor for the spiritual rebirth and resurrection power available to all who believe. It invites contemplation of the transformation that Christ underwent and the one He offers to each of us.

The theme verse of the collection, 2 Corinthians 3:18, is embodied in this painting: "And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.  For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit." This verse serves as a reminder of our ongoing journey toward divine likeness.

As the premier piece of the collection, this image of Christ's hands holding a creature symbolic of change and beauty calls us to "Behold Him"—to actively engage with His presence. In beholding Jesus, we are not merely spectators but participants in a journey, called to embody His image, embrace His teachings, and carry forward the message of transformation and hope.
