Images for the Third Sunday of Advent

This is typically the second Sunday of John the Baptist readings for the season of Advent, so a few images of John the Baptist first and then I’m going to  break from the Revised Common Lectionary this Sunday in Year A (Matthew) and use the genealogy in Matthew’s gospel as a way to introduce the story. So John the Baptist first, as I mentioned last week John the Baptist is a favorite of artists so there are lots more out there, but a few include:

Joan de Joanes, Saint John the Baptist, 1560

Images for St. Michael and All Angels Sunday

Since I have begun my new position at Rejoice Lutheran Church in Frisco, Texas and they are using the Revised Common Lectionary I am going to begin posting public domain Christian art I find for the upcoming week (some of which I will use, others I will not) and maybe someone else might find this helpful in their process of thinking about the texts.
