    “The painter should paint not only what he has in front of him, but also what he sees inside himself.” (Caspar David Friedrich) Created in the year of 1818 during the romantic period we had an artist of the name Caspar David Friedrich. His most famous work was the Wanderer above the Sea of Fog. Not only is it a beautiful landscape, he drew himself looking at fog and water. It includes self-expression, beauty and great detail. What I like most about this artwork is that it invites you to look at things in his perspective. This also makes you think and wonder as well. Even though his back is facing us, we still continue to look at what he is viewing and look at him as well. We can see what he sees and we can almost feel how he feels and what he wants us…

    of their presence, as they sit frozen before the unnoticed viewer.

    Samuel lays out the foundation of some of ancient Israelis most famous and influential kings, describing in detail the rise of king David, and the reign of his predecessor Saul. However, while presented as Israeli history, the tales of Samuel possess a clear bias in favor of King David, as the text attempts to exonerate him of any wrongdoing during his rise to king. 1 Samuel 25, a small excerpt from this larger kingship narrative, possesses important social and literal conflicts, as it broaches…

King David was an incredible symbol of worship both in his time and ours, and is particularly significant in how we should view worship.
