Pencil Drawing of Jesus Offering His Hand

Jesus Offering His Hand

This piece was inspired by Jesus from Matthew 11:28-29.  There will be many more pencil drawings to be created of Jesus.  This was very natural for me to create.
“Come to me all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for you souls.”

  2. Hey I really like this picture of Jesus it’s a really good perspective of Him, but i think it seems unfinished with out his scars. I’m only a teenager so you may think that i don’t know what I’m talking about but it was just an observation that i thought you may have wanted to here.

    • Thanks for your comment. No I would never think you don’t know what you are talking about. That’s a very interesting observation. And a good one. Am I drawing Jesus before or after his body was put on the cross? To be honest with you when I drew this I was not thinking about the physical attributes of Jesus connected with his sacrifice. I was more thinking and concentrating on his message to love one another. One hand is reaching out and one hand is on his heart for so many reasons: to love God, to love your neighbor as yourself, to be centered on His (Jesus) love, to be centered on your own love, that within you is the Kingdom of Heaven, that within us all is the ability to become like Him, we are all children of God, our souls desire to return to God. There is a lot of interest in drawing Jesus, and I know I can do better, perhaps I will continue to draw more, perhaps I will include scars next time.

      • I was in search of a picture of Jesus without all the gruesome symbols and signs of the terrible torture that He endured for us and I found your moving artistic interpretation.. PLEASE…do not change your mind’s eye and draw for others. I pray you continue your evolution into the light and keep the kinder, more gentle presentations of our Lord and Master in your sight.

      • Thank you. I do my best to follow my heart.

  3. I know where you are coming from now, and completely understand! The reason I noticed the detail of scars is because I am drawing a picture for a local Showcase myself and Jesus’ hand is in it so I was wondering why you chose not to show his sacrafice. But it is true that I never thought about the fact that people can draw Him before he was crucified! I like this picture even more now that I know it was made in a different perspective than I’m used to!

  4. Hello. I will just tell you that I have seen this person. He gave me the light, and it shines through my heart.
    Thank you for making this drawing.

  5. hiya, i also enjoy drawing. I was thinking about what to draw and this image came to me with Jesus’ hand out like that- how very weird that i have just stumbled across your drawing. Not only that but matt 11:28-29 only spoke to me this morning when i was reading my bible and this has confirmed which God has spoken. You should rejoice that God is using the work of your hands. keep up the good work!!!
