About this work

Description

Bible. N.T. John 1.14-38. The two disciples pictured are mentioned in John 1.37-38 as John's followers, who desert him on seeing Christ. One is identified as Andrew, Peter's brother (1.40). Here one reads a scroll of scripture for predictions of Christ's arrival and the other holds his head in his hands in anxiety. On the ground are a shepherd's hat and crook. Behind Jesus a flock of sheep rests in front of a city. But next to them, on the left, is a tree felled by an axe (Matthew 3.7-10; Luke 3.7-9)
