Bible in Art

Art is a powerful means of interpreting the biblical text. Too often we think of interpretation as textual exegesis. But images, music, poetry, drama, and dance convey meaningful perspectives of Scripture not articulated otherwise. This page is currently under construction. I will gradually add resources and links of artists’ interpretations of the Old Testament.
