New ways of depicting Jesus

At the Mormon History Association last week (where I presented a paper on the influence of Jonathan Edwards), I attended a session on art that included a discussion of new ways of depicting Jesus more accurately, given the setting of the New Testament. You can see some of the examples at these links:
