Fine Arts Presentation

  1. 1. Symbolism in Religious Art By: John Bentz
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Instead of doing a particular group for this assignment, I decided to target a specific part of art that has to do with religion. The area I am doing this project on is the parables. We are to live in good manners and these Biblical parables remind us of everyday situations. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Outline <ul><li>The parables that I am going to display art of and explain to the best of my knowledge are: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The parable of the unmerciful servant </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The parable of the Sower. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The parable of the Prodigal son. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The parable of the mustard seed. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The parable of the Pharisee and tax collector. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The parable of the Talents. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Parable of the Unmerciful Servant <ul><li>Background (Matthew 18:21-35) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A servant who was in debt to his master begged the master to have patience with him instead of getting rid of his family. The master did so, forgave him, and gave him more time. The servant then found a servant for him who was in debt. The servant demanded this guy to pay his debts while choking him. He did not give in and had him thrown in jail because he couldn’t pay him back.After seeing this, the master rebuked the servant and had him thrown in jail and tortured until he could pay back the debt. The final verse says’ “This is how my heavenly father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.” </li></ul></ul></ul>

  8. 8. The Parable of the Sower <ul><li>Background (Matthew 13:3-13) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This parable tells the story through a seed that falls in the ground in several different terrains. It relates to life because it says a person who gains information and enjoys it for a short time is like a seed that is sown on rock. A seed sown in the thorns is like a person who receives the word but then gets choked basically by worry. The man who hears the word and understands it is the one that becomes fruitful. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Images of this Parable <ul><li>Albrecht Dürer, </li></ul><ul><li>Date: c. 1503 </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>

  12. 12. The Parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>Background (Matthew) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This parable tells a story of a son who asks for his inheritance from his dad before he is dead. His dad gives it to him and the son leaves. The older son stays and “slaves for his dad”. When the younger son has used all his money, he works for a little bit of money then comes home. The older son is outraged when the dad accepts the younger son back, gives him the best of robes, and a big feast. The older son talks to the dad about it, but the dad is just happy his son is home and tells the older son to forgive. </li></ul></ul></ul>

  16. 16. The Parable of the Mustard Seed <ul><li>Background (Matthew 13:31-32) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This story basically reminds people that no matter how small sometimes seems at the time, later on it can grow into something big and beautiful. The example is with a mustard seed. Although it is the smallest seed, it can grow into the largest plant in the garden and then a tree for birds to rest on. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  17. 17. The Parable of the Mustard Seed <ul><li>This page did not have any artist or anything but it depicts Jesus holding out mustard seeds. </li></ul><ul><li>http:// =32 </li></ul>
  18. 18. The Parable of a Mustard Seed <ul><li> </li></ul>
  19. 19. The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector <ul><li>Background: (Luke 18:9-14) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This is an interesting parable because it talks about a Pharisee that went to the temple to pray and in his prayer sustains the fact that he has done no wrong and is better than the tax collector near him. The tax collector begs for mercy. One verse says, “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” (Verse 14) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  20. 20. Parable of the Tax Collector <ul><li>http:// =63 </li></ul>
  21. 21. Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector <ul><li>http:// </li></ul>

  23. 23. The Parable of the Talents <ul><li>Background (Matthew 25:14-30) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This parable starts out with a master giving one person five talents, another two talents, and a last person one talent. He expects to see them put them to good use and make more talents. The first two people do just that. The last guy takes his talent and buries it and does nothing with it. When they report back to the master. He rebukes the guy because the guy accused him of being “hard”. The people who made more talents are given credit and are given more, but the person who hid the talent got thrown “outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” This is a story I believe to be intended to tell us to utilize what we have and for God’s sake. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Parable of the Talents <ul><li>Artist: Rembrandt </li></ul><ul><li>http:// </li></ul>

  26. 26. Parable of the Talents <ul><li>This art is a great portrayal of all the steps in this parable. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  27. 27. Conclusion <ul><li>These are just a few of the parables that are in Biblical text. There are many, many more. It is my belief that there are a part of religious art symbolism because they are meant to show us how to live in according to God. </li></ul>
