Baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist

The baptism of Jesus Christ by John the Baptist took place in the Jordan River.

God told John, "This is my beloved son with whom I am well pleased."

Born of the Virgin Mary, Jesus the Son of God, has inspired billions of people over the last 2,000 years.

baptismIt is this motivation that has led me to embroider this image, and to honour not only Jesus Christ and St. John the Baptist but also the Holy Spirit, which "descended on Him like a dove" during the baptism.

This embroidery, set to card, will be my gift to the Church of St. Demetrius, patron saint of Thessaloniki, the city which was named after the sister of Alexander the Great.
