Isaiah 42:1-9; 53;
Matthew 16:13-17:9

“Moses the law-giver and Elijah the Prophet, great as they were, differed from Jesus in one important way: they had both engaged in violence in God’s name.” Brian Mclaren, We Make the Road by Walking, Ch 25

The image is of “Let Us Beat Swords into Plowshares” – in 1959 the artist Evgeniy Vuchetich was commissioned by the Soviet Union to produce the statue for the United Nations. For further information about the artist and photographer see here.
