Musician Angelo Spagnolo’s created this week’s work, a transformed man, in response to Matthew 11:15-17 and the theme of dancing.
Artist StatementMatthew 11:15-17
He who has ears to hear, let him hear. But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their playmates,‘We played the flute for you and you did not dance;we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn’
No matter how many times Jesus talked about it in the Gospels, the Good News seemed to be something that people couldn’t quite wrap their minds around. I imagine Jesus after just being raised from the dead, strapped with a headset-mic, shouting with the vigor of an aerobics instructor: “C’mon people! It’s me, you see! GET UP AND DANCE!”
But the people still doubted and very few of them actually end up dancing.
