Station 9: Jesus falls a third time

"For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
Luke 14:11

 
Eric Gill - Jesus falls a third time

Eric Gill (1882–1940), made this wood engraving on paper in 1917. The engraving is 54 by 54 mm and part of the Tate Library. Arthur Eric Rowton Gill was an English sculptor, typeface designer, stonecutter and printmaker.

Gustav Doré -
Jesus Collapses Under the Cross
Gustave Doré (1832 – 1883) made this engraving in 1865 as part of his illustrated Bible.


Coin
The last one is the most amazing. There is money in everything. Like I collected soccer cards when I was young, you can collect 14 of these coins (in a gift box) as well. Gold plated, at $25 each.

    1. LOL, the coin makes me think of the scene in the bible that Jesus is mad of the salesman in the temple. There is money in religion. The coin is nice to look at though.

      Glad you liked it,
      Han
