I have a Powerpoint meditation on Images of Jesus that I put together a few years back and plan to use this upcoming week with my class. The presentation contains 82 images of Jesus that I’ve found from various sources. In all, the presentation is set to run about eight minutes long and I have it timed to two songs that I play on CD: “Jesus, the Lord” (St. Louis Jesuit) and “Hold on to Jesus” (Stephen Curtis Chapman).
The slide show depicts Jesus in a myriad of ways: happy, sad, teaching, healing, suffering, dying, rising, black, white, Asian, and more. Some of the images are contemporary and some are traditional, even ancient. I use it as a way to invite the young people to reflect on their image of Jesus and to see that Jesus speaks to all people of all times, ages, races, cultures, and ethnic backgrounds.
If you would like me to send the Powerpoint to you via e-mail, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
