Olive Trees Growing Together
The jealous struggles between sibling rivals can be very intense and painful for the whole family. This painting attempts to expose that kind of very real emotionally charged wrestling that takes place, often nonverbally within the family of God.
Misunderstanding, judgements, indifference and other negative beliefs and attitudes over many generations have soured our relationships towards one another.
Jews and Gentiles have been culturally and spiritually separated for nearly 2000 years, and this in spite of Jesus being the Jewish lamb of God.
Jewish believers are distinct in their own Identity as the Olive Tree of Israel. Whilst Gentile Christian’s,(wild olive tree) are grafted into the Olive Tree of Israel.
As gentiles we are becoming increasingly aware of our role in God’s purposes for the salvation of all Israel.
Through this family struggle, both sides of the family learn to grow in love towards one another in preparation for the Return of Messiah Yeshua Jesus.
