New Scripture Art

August 31, 2011

The first of a series of scripture art is now posted on Etsy.

I also have a listing for the story of Jonah and the whale. –

For anyone who doesn’t know the story:

Long ago, in ancient central America, there lived two nations, the Lamanites and the Nephites.  For the most part, the Lamanites were a war-loving, ferocous people, and the Nephites were peaceful and followed God.

Many Nephite Missionaries had tried to go into the Lamanite lands and teach them about God, but had no success.   Until a group of young men went – Ammon, Aaron, Omner and Himni.

Upon reaching the Lamanite lands, the young men separated and went into different cities, ruled by  Kings.  When Ammon went to the Land of Ishmael, he was captured and brought before the King.  He told the King he wanted to be his servant.  Because he served the King faithfully, even using God’s power to defend the king’s flock of sheep from robbers, he was able to teach the Lamanite king about God.  The Lamanite King and all of his people were converted.

But they were sorry for all of their murders that they had committed before being converted.  They made a promise to God that they would never kill anyone again, and as a sign, they buried all of their weapons.  They kept that promise, even when other Lamanites, angry at the People of Ammon for converting, attacked. Many were killed, but because the people of Ammon weren’t fighting, the attacking lamanites had compassion on them, put down their weapons, and were converted as well.
