Apocalyptic Art

 

    We realize that Beyond Creation Science may have turned your theological world upside-down. If you are convinced that the approach outlined in Beyond Creation Science is the best way to understand the story the Bible tells from Genesis to Revelation, then you might be asking yourself at this point how to share what you have learned with others. You could always get more books for your friends. Quantity discounts are available. But sometimes handing a book to a friend or loved one, especially a book like this, can be an awkward and intimidating method.

    We have another option for you. Are you interested in sharing your new views with your friends and family in a non-threatening way that will grab their attention, open discussion, and communicate the message in an apocalyptic, artistic way? Are you interested in buying the art that stands behind this book? Now you can purchase ground-breaking art for your home, office, or church created distinctly from the preterist view of biblical prophecy.

    At key points in this book we used artwork from the cover to communicate our message visually. This handsome art comes from two original paintings by the accomplished artist, James Robert Kessler. Both of these painting are based off Jesus’ own teaching in the Olivet Discourse: 

Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. It was the same in the days of Lot . People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom , fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. Remember Lot 's wife! (Luke 17:26-32 NIV)

 

 

    Jesus placed these three biblical events in a logical relationship. Jim Kessler brought together images of all three of these great covenant judgments in covenant history – Noah’s flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, and the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple in ad 70 – using stunning imagery and symbolism. The result is nothing less than apocalyptic art. This is practical artwork that honors Scripture in its original time setting and cultural relevance, and it is sure to get the attention of all who view it.  Excellent reproductions of the original two paintings displayed on the front and back cover of Beyond Creation Science are now available.

      The front cover displays the first painting titled The Prophetic Vision. This painting is reproduced on the same Masonite medium as the original piece andBook-Cover.jpg presents the three events Jesus referenced in Luke 17 in a vertical orientation. Herod’s temple is placed at the center of the painting, symbolizing the theological significance of the Jewish temple in New Testament prophecy. The ark below the temple combined with the city of Sodom above the temple complete the comparison Jesus and the apostles emphasized throughout their prophetic teaching. This full-size reproduction measures 20 by 16 inches and is limited to 200 total copies. Each painting is numbered on the back and hand-signed by the artist which will only increase the value over the years to come.


    The back cover displays the second painting titled The Apocalyptic Vision. This painting, reproduced on the same canvas medium as the originalScroll.jpg piece, presents these three events in a horizontal orientation on the background of a scroll. The scroll represents God’s revealed Word: Noah’s flood, the fires of Sodom and the destruction of Herod’s temple are represented as key events in covenant history. They merge through the inundation of the outer courts of the temple with waters from the flood. The fires of Sodom in the background are reflected off the temple and water to unify the apocalyptic teaching of Jesus and the apostles. This is a powerful and provocative work of art when viewed in person. Even those not familiar with preterism will recognize this as a unique and unforgettable painting. This full-size reproduction measures 30 by 20 inches and is limited to 500 total copies. Each painting is numbered on the back and hand-signed by the artist which will, again, only increase its value over the years to come.

    Matching numbered sets of both reproductions are available as supplies last. Order today!

Customer Comments:
"Jim Kessler's artwork is absolutely incredible! When I dropped off both Beyond Creation Science reproductions to have them framed for presentation in my home, the frame shop employees were stunned at their power and beauty. Not only are they great pieces of art, but they are outstanding conversation starters, allowing one to introduce others to the good news of God's grace. The smaller Masonite reproduction of the front cover artwork (The Prophetic Vision) is an excellent addition to any home, office or library. The larger canvas reproduction of the back cover artwork (The Apocalyptic Vision) frames very well and has found a home in our living room. One cannot go wrong with either of these reproductions ... but you should get both, just to be safe. ;-)"

"The detail in both of these pieces is amazing! We still see something new each time we look at them. We had the privilege of seeing the original of "The Apocalyptic Vision" when we met Jim Kessler last summer. We are extremely pleased with the quality of the reproduction. It is a beautiful addition to our home, and we look forward to the many conversations it will inspire."

"I became awareVoss_Office.jpg of Jim Kessler's artworth through my friendship and involvement with Tim and Jeff's book project. I have been richly blessed with two of Jim's pieces which I now display prominently in my place of business. To say the least, these two works of art attract my customer's attention when they come in to visit. I have had many compliments and also questions regarding their background and who produced them.

One of my customers of Jewish faith was especially intrigued as she gazed at the artwork unfolding upon the scroll and was especially taken with it. We had a nice discussion pertaining to the reference and signficance of the Ark and the Temple.

Many have mentioned the richness of the colors and the beauties of the depictions which have compelled their inquiry about the artwork's purpose."
