Images for the Fourth Sunday of Advent

Another cool resource I found this week for artwork is Art and Bible which is in French, but it is pretty easy to click on the wikis for various readings which also has some great artwork for this passage.

For this year it is Matthew’s nativity story which focuses attention on Joseph and the angel speaking to Joseph in a dream:
