Duccio di Buoninsegna, Adoration of the Magi
Museo dell'Opera del Duomo - Siena

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of Jehovah is risen upon thee. For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Jehovah will arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And nations shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: they all gather themselves together, they come to thee; thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be carried in the arms. Then thou shalt see and be radiant, and thy heart shall thrill and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned unto thee, the wealth of the nations shall come unto thee.

~ Isaiah 60: 1-6

  1. Good post. You're giving me a lot to think about here. It is a mystery. All of it, but a wonderful one at that. Thanks for inspiring further my thoughts on the subject.
