He Is Risen

In an effort to teach Paisley the true meaning of Easter we decided to forgo all of the baskets, eggs and chocolate while instead implementing a little pagentry. This is what Paisley woke up to this morning:


Okay, so that's not really a true story. We've been sitting on this photo for a few months now and decided that today was the perfect day to release it to the public. After years of past sacrilegious impersonations of Jesus, Tim was actually approached by a real artist at the end of the year about the idea of posing as Jesus for a couple of shots for a series of paintings that she is working on. The artist attends our church and is rather talented. Her concept is to put together a series of five paintings depicting different life stages of Christ and his relationship with Mary, from infant to the resurrection. Tim stood in for carrying the cross to Golgotha and appearing to Mary in Gethsemane as a resurrected being. Brandi couldn't resist snapping a couple of pictures during the process for posterity. Tim was just excited to be able to add "Jesus Model" to his resume. Happy Easter everyone.

Man, I don't even know what to say. I want him to be saying something along the lines of "Don't act like you're not impressed," though. It'd make everything right in my mind.

I need to know if you got paid for this modeling, Tim. No denying you're good at it, but if you got paid I'll call it sacrilege. Otherwise it's just an artist who recognizes an obvious similarity when she sees one. Congrats, though. You should send this to the LDS Church and see if they'll cast you in the next film they show on Temple Square. :)

Oh geez, and I was just telling my husband the story of the kid at church asking if he was Jesus the other day. I sent him the link. This is goooood.

so lifelike. that's just shocking really. tim, you make a really outstanding Jesus. And I don't say that often!

So, what does that make me? No, I'm not going there. Ever since you told me about this I have been looking at other artist's renditions. Especially in this month's Ensign, there are lots of pictures. I'm proud to say I think you look more like what I would picture Him looking like. The others just probably don't have the genes. Love you! Mom

Tim- You make a great Jesus! I see that Abe has now started a sorry blog along with the rest of the Yospe clan (all linked up).

I hope all is well with you guys! We will have to make it down to another sad UNLV football game sometime.

Best,
Cousin Jacob

Talk about receiving His image in your countenance ...

Love it. Brent is secretly jealous. A popular LDS artist once approached him and asked if he would portray Ammon. He was all stoked about it.

She never called :( .

That is one of the most funny things I have ever seen. Then why am I feeling so guilty about laughing at it?

By the way, thanks for visiting my blog. I have linked yours on mine, I hope that is ok? I will keep updated on yours.
