Woman marrying 7 brothers

A comical take on the Gospel reading of tomorrow (Lk 20: 27 ff)
It is about the woman marrying the seven brothers, beginning with the eldest...
Of course, highly feminist groups would take offense at this part of the gospel - and rightly so.  However, the real point intended is very different from what is apparent.  This happens often in the Bible:  the apparent is something and the message is totally something else.  Sometimes we get stuck with the apparent, very rarely reach the real meaning and most often create our own meaning.

  1. Haha.. good one. I love the idea of the artist using sheep to do the talking. The poor people in the story were like sheep only, following the herd quietly.
