When He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is

Albrecht Dürer. Apocalipsis cum Figuris

JP: Thinking back to our lesson last week and 1 John 3:2, “When He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is”; I came across this very cool Woodcut entitled Apocalipsis cum Figuris [Apocalypse with Figures].

More on that from the image source

Albrecht Dürer. Apocalipsis cum Figuris [Apocalypse with Figures]. Nuremberg: Albrecht Dürer, 1498.

Albrecht Dürer was one of the most important figures in Northern Renaissance art, famous for his oil landscapes, self–portraits, and revolutionary work with woodcuts.

This classic image from the ‘Book of Revelation’ is from Dürer’s Apocalypse cycle of woodcuts, created at a time when all of Europe anticipated The Last Judgment in the year 1500.
