In this painting the Savior sits alone on the shore of the Sea of Galilee at sunset. As the fishermen care for their nets in preparation for the next day’s work, He contemplates His Father’s plan. The masts of the three fishing boats represent the crosses that wait for Him in the last scene of His earthly life. He faces a crossroad. As the day comes to an end, He anticipates the great sacrifice ahead at Gethsemane and moves forward into the unknown — the darkness of uncertainty. Just as He did, we all face crossroads and decisions in our lives.
