Images for the Second Sunday after Epiphany, Lectionary 2A

The second Sunday of Epiphany always takes us into John’s story, and in year A it is John the Baptist pointing out Jesus as the Lamb of God, two of John’s disciples (one being Andrew) following Jesus and then Andrew bringing Simon who is renamed Peter.

There are some good John the Baptist images in my Advent posts, but here is another couple:

Jacopo del Sellaio, St John the Baptist about 1485
