The Wide & Narrow Gate

The Wide & Narrow Gate

View at full size.

The Wide & Narrow Gate continues the series of scripture based images but breaks out of the circular shapes used in the previous three images. It is another experiment in layer manipulation and compositing in photoshop. My hope is to do a series based on this idea – each piece bordered with a unique frame.

Scripture: “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.” Matthew 7:13

Being another piece from a Christian perspective this one received a mixed response. For the most part is has been positive but some have been disturbed by the brutality of the Wide Gate. I certainly did not sugar coat it. Not surprisingly everyone responded favorably to the Narrow Gate no matter what they believed to be true or not.

Note: the text at the bottom of each piece is Hebrew. The left is “The Narrow Gate” and the right is “The Wide Gate”. I am not positive that the Hebrew is correct but I hope so.
