A beautiful and touching Antique Sculpture of Jesus Christ carrying the cross which was found at a French antiques market and is crafted from chalkware. Dating to 1920, this Antique Chalkware Sculpture tells the bible story found in John 19:17, that Christ carried his own cross to the place of his crucifixion. The figure of Jesus Christ looks directly at the viewer with a kind yet penetrating gaze, which seems to echo the Bible passage Mark 8:34, that reads, "...If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me."
Jesus of Nazareth (2 BC – 36 AD), also known as Jesus Christ, is the central figure of Christianity and is revered by most Christian churches as the Son of God and the incarnation of God. The principal sources of information regarding the life of Jesus and His teachings are the four canonical gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) in the New Testament. Biblical scholars agree Jesus was a Galilean Jew, who was regarded as a teacher and healer. He was baptized by John the Baptist and crucified in Jerusalem under the order of Pontius Pilate. Christian views of Jesus center on the belief that he is divine, is the Messiah whose coming was prophesied in the Old Testament, and that he was resurrected after his crucifixion. His mother was the Virgin Mary, also known as Our Lady or the Madonna.
