Images for 20th Sunday After Pentecost (Expanded)/ Lectionary 27

Gospel Reading is Luke 17: 5-10 (which I think you need to have the broader context of 17:1-4) so here are some of the images that I used in thinking about this. This was more challenging than last week, since there is not as much artwork about this collection of sayings so you may or may not see connections:

In Luke’s version it is a mulberry tree that is uprooted and cast into the sea, I like this interpretation of VanGough’s painting of a Mulberry tree. On deviantart the artist has the option to make their file downloadable or not, and if they allow it to be downloadable I try to give credit but assume they are OK with their work being seen.

Jan Luyken, The Parable of the Mustard Seed

This actually points to the Markan parable talking about the kingdom of God being like a Mustard Seed, but it was another image reasonably close to this set of sayings.

This is from the end of the parable “we are only servants”
