Lent Devotional: Rembrandt’s Storm On The Sea Of Galilee

This Lent Devotional is focused on the Storm on the Sea of Galilee,  and can serve as a vehicle for many to experience an inspiring portion of Scripture and to sense the voice of God. The masterpieces we will examine in this series are incredible expressions of spiritual truth. (If you wish to read the devotional just click on red title.)

Stolen on March 18, 1990, this painting was one of 13 taken in one of the largest art thefts in history. Posing as police officers, the thieves broke into the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum in Boston and stole 13 works. The paintings are still missing and the empty frames hang in their original locations in the library, a sad reminder and testament to the loss.

Another interesting note is that Rembrandt’s signature is on the rudder of the ship. If you are sharing this painting with children, a search for the signature can be a fun way to encourage close observations.

If you enjoy this work you can check out my blog post on Rembrandt’s, Dream of Saint Joseph.
