Images for the 23rd Sunday after Pentecost/ Lectionary 29

Luke 18: 1-8, the Parable of the Unjust Judge, and Genesis 32: 22-31, Jacob wrestles and is renamed Israel

There are not a lot of images for the Parable of the Unjust Judge, but here is one:

John Everett Millais, Parable of the Unjust Judge (1863)

For the reading from Genesis there are some good classic images, and I also am planning to use more of Joseph’s story so I included a couple images not specifically from this scene:
