Jesus told her, “I am the Resurrection and the Life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this”? - John 11:25-26
‘The Resurrection’ by artist Ron DiCianni is an oil on canvas mural that measures 12 x 40 feet. This mural was commissioned by the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas, Texas. DiCianni’s patience in researching and detailing every aspect of the resurrection from reading the scriptures and then transferring how he envisioned the moment of the resurrection to the mural took over two years to complete. His desire is to reclaim the Arts for Christ. According to a staffer at the museum a ribbon cutting was held on September 28, 2010 and can be viewed in the Mattie Caruth Byrd Gallery.
"Although some may ignore the resurrection at their peril, nobody can deny that it is a historically and theologically proven fact beyond doubt. My hope is that as this mural is installed, many will be confronted with the scene of ‘The Resurrection’ and make the decision that Jesus Christ is worthy of being called their Lord and Savior."
