Dear Truthbook Friends,

Once again, we have the pleasure of announcing the newest in a series of inspiring paintings depicting events in the Master's life on earth. We are happy to introduce to you "Tender Care," painted by Slawa Radziszewska.

This scene from Jesus' life illustrates an event from his tour of the Roman world. During this nearly two-year tour Jesus served as interpreter to a merchant from India, Gonod, and as tutor to his teen-aged son, Ganid. Near the end of the trip, Jesus, Gonod and Ganid had planned a time of rest and relaxation in the mountains on Cyprus. But during this time, Ganid became so terribly ill that he couldn't be moved. And so, Jesus and Gonod ministered to him, eventually restoring him to health.

The story is recounted here:

Shortly the travelers set sail for Cyprus, stopping at Rhodes. They enjoyed the long water voyage and arrived at their island destination much rested in body and refreshed in spirit.

It was their plan to enjoy a period of real rest and play on this visit to Cyprus as their tour of the Mediterranean was drawing to a close. They landed at Paphos and at once began the assembly of supplies for their sojourn of several weeks in the near-by mountains. On the third day after their arrival they started for the hills with their well-loaded pack animals.

For two weeks the trio greatly enjoyed themselves, and then, without warning, young Ganid was suddenly taken grievously ill. For two weeks he suffered from a raging fever, oftentimes becoming delirious; both Jesus and Gonod were kept busy attending the sick boy. Jesus skillfully and tenderly cared for the lad, and the father was amazed by both the gentleness and adeptness manifested in all his ministry to the afflicted youth. They were far from human habitations, and the boy was too ill to be moved; so they prepared as best they could to nurse him back to health right there in the mountains.

During Ganid's convalescence of three weeks Jesus told him many interesting things about nature and her various moods. And what fun they had as they wandered over the mountains, the boy asking questions, Jesus answering them, and the father marveling at the whole performance.

This is another of those amazing scenes from Jesus' life that is virtually unknown on earth, except to those of us who have been graced with the Fifth Epochal Revelation. Imagine the Creator of a universe ministering to the young Indian at this mountainside camp; and how reassuring it must have been to his father, seeing the skill with which Jesus treated the boy, and the tender concern that Jesus showed toward this beloved son...what a characteristic demonstration of love shown by the Master!

We hope that you will enjoy this newest painting, and will be prompted to pass it on to your truth-seeking friends and family.
Quote:
196:1.3 To "follow Jesus" means to personally share his religious faith and to enter into the spirit of the Master's life of unselfish service for man. One of the most important things in human living is to find out what Jesus believed, to discover his ideals, and to strive for the achievement of his exalted life purpose. Of all human knowledge, that which is of greatest value is to know the religious life of Jesus and how he lived it.

Sincerely,
The Truthbook Team

It's gorgeous, Gremlin! I assume it was done in oils. Do you have the dimensions of the painting? It's quite an inspiration.

No person has seen them all displayed simultaneously on a wall. Nevertheless, Ann Whitehead Garner (see below) managed to snap a few when she visited Boulder. Mo is looking for a permanent home for the paintings. There will be a lot of paintings when the dust settles.
