Mike Moyers, Cleansing the Temple, 2014
An abstract oil painting based on the story of Jesus cleansing the temple from the Gospel of John. It is an abstract expression depicting a righteous storm against injustice and the chaos that is stirred when grace confronts sin. The painitng also explores the cleansing of the heart. The human body is often referred to as “God’s Temple.” This painitng expresses the internal struggle that occurs when God’s grace “turns the tables” on the sin in our hearts.
