picture of the day


click the image to see much larger. found at one of my favorite sites: BibliOdyssey
intriguing collection of prints, illustrations/books & history. ♥

image above: "Martin Luther’s first translation of the entire New Testament ['Das Newe Testament Deutzsch'] from the Greek original was published by Melchior Lotter the Younger in September 1522, with woodcut illustrations by Lucas Cranach." can anybody tell me what story this is illustrating? it didn't have it marked where i found it. fascinating imagery.
