Here Jesus is depicted looking quite stern. Traditionally people see God as being tough and stern, and Jesus reflecting the 'softer' side of God . Jesus is perceived as being soft and gentle and generally being a bit of a 'soft touch'. There is the false notion I believe that Jesus is so easy going He will tolerate anything because 'He is loving and understanding'. The New Testament makes clear that Jesus has the nature of God, therefore He is not a soft touch and can be stern and tough like God when it's needed. Here Jesus is depicted as a strong man who knows His own mind,A man who knows who He is and has authority. This portrait to me also speaks of judgement ... What does it say to you?
