Thirty Days of Jesus: Day 25, The Authority of Jesus

This section of verses that show Jesus' life are focused on His attributes & earthly ministry. We've seen Him as servant, teacher, shepherd, intercessor, and healer. We looked at His attribute of omniscience and now, His authority.

There are two photos because I couldn't decide, lol. How to represent the authority of Jesus over life, in pictorial form? That was a tough one. I settled on the notion of the dock being the long journey of finite earthly life in the flesh, then we come to an inevitable end and launch up and into the eternal heavens. Jesus has authority over every step.
