"The Word became Flesh"

in the beginning painting, monarch butterflies and Jesus' hands holding the Word


"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind."  John 1: 1-4

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters." Genesis 1: 1-2


In the vast tapestry of a deep cerulean expanse, a divine symphony unfolds, capturing the essence of creation's first breath. The painting evokes the profound moments of Genesis 1, where the Spirit of God, full of promise and life, hovered over the watery abyss. This sacred moment is beautifully embodied by a kaleidoscope of amber-hued, monarch butterflies, gracefully dancing above the waters. These ethereal creatures, delicate yet vibrant, mirror the Spirit's gentle yet omnipotent presence.

Central to this celestial dance, a pair of hands cradle an open book, symbolizing the Word of God. These hands are emblematic of Jesus, the Word made flesh, as celebrated in John 1:1 - "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." The pages, touched by the soft wings of butterflies, seem to pulsate with divine energy, reflecting Jesus' transformative role in God's grand design. 

The butterflies, reminiscent to the Spirit's brooding presence, lead one to contemplate the redemptive and renewing power of Jesus, the divine plan incarnate. Just as a butterfly signifies rebirth and transformation, so does Jesus, the Word made flesh, embody God's promise to bring light from darkness, hope from despair, and life from void. Through this exquisite artwork, we are reminded of the eternal dance between Word and Spirit and the transformative love of Jesus that forever changed the course of history.
