Vincent van Gogh and the Gospel of Jesus Christ (by David Wood)

I share this piece because it so clearly and compassionately relays the essence of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and man's ability to marginalize the miracle of salvation God has offered as a free gift to all people.
On December 23, 1888, Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh cut off his own ear with a razor and delivered the ear to a girl named Rachel at a local brothel. Many have assumed that van Gogh's ear was some sort of twisted present for a prostitute he loved. However, recent research has shown that Rachel wasn't a prostitute. She was a farmer's daughter who had been mauled by a rabid dog. This new information about Rachel affects our understanding of van Gogh's tragic episode. In this video, David Wood discusses van Gogh and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
