A SABBATH DAY’S WALK WITH TWO COMPANIONS: LUKE AND REMBRANDT

Modern Believing (2019), 60, (4), 327–345.

Abstract

Both Luke and Rembrandt take their audiences on a Sabbath Day’s Walk. They converse with us, with each other and within themselves. This article takes readers on a journey with both these Companions. Part 1 observes nuances in the Greek of Luke’s text. Part 2 considers three Rembrandt paintings in the light of Harry Guntrip’s observation that Michelangelo displayed an ‘obvious continuity of unconscious process’ in his representations of the Madonna. Part 3 concludes by using Georges Didi-Huberman, Paul Ricoeur and Max Milner to offer a commentary on the Companions’ Conversation. They each help clarify how the Emmaus encounter in Luke and Rembrandt attests to the possibility and power of our ‘being moved’ on this Walk.
