Old Testament Art - The Ram Sacrificed Instead of Isaac
|The Ram Caught in the Thicket|
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church - San Antonio, TX
It always feels like a treasure to me when I find any Old Testament art in a Catholic Church. It doesn't seem to happen a lot. During my Granddaughter's baptism, I spotted this banner which recalls "The Testing of Abraham" (Genesis 22:1-19).
Abraham looked up and saw a single ram
caught by its horns in the thicket.
So Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up
as a burnt offering in place of his son.
~ Genesis 22:13
