Quo Vadis
by James Muir

Description:

"Yes, I come to bring Peace, but first I bring the Great Sword of Truth that will bring illusion to the surface where it can be recognized and severed from that which is real." Mathhew 10:34 vari. "For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Hebrew 4:12 "Quo Vadis"-Where are you going?-an allegory of th resurrected Christ is a depiction in bronze of creation's return to the Creator, of humanities return to God. From base to crown, a symbolic spiritual quest for the hidden meanings within, symbols within symbols, where God's Truth is revealed. The title ?Quo Vadis' comes from Peter's question to the resurrected Christ, ?Quo Vadis Domine?' ?Whither goest thou Lord.' Leaving Rome to avoid persecution, Peter met Jesus who was on His way to Rome along the Appian Way. Jesus replied that He was going to Rome because His people were being persecuted. This response humbled Peter and prompted him to return to Rome to confront the persecution and his own eventual death by crucifixion.
