Images for the Seventh Sunday of Easter 2014

Acts 1: 15-17; 21-26         The Choosing of Matthias as an Apostle
Psalm 1                                   Happy are those who do not Follow the Advice of the Wicked
1 John 5: 9-12                     Whoever has the Son has Life
John 17: 6-18                      Jesus’ High Priestly Prayer 
 

The last several weeks of Easter are all in this long section of John’s gospel in the context of the Jesus’ final evening with his disciples before his crucifixion. It is harder to find images for these sections, particularly images that are not copyrighted or that I can find good information to credit the author. I will include a few links to some other images I liked but the sites where I found them didn’t indicate the author.

From Acts 1, the choosing of Matthias

From John 17

Since the focus is on the twelve (or eleven at this point) in Jesus prayer the setting aside of the 12 apostles made sense to me

A couple more interesting images here, and these very nice images by Iain McKillop which although they reflect more of the story in Matthew, Mark and Luke I found helpful in thinking about the passages this week.
