"While painting “Resurrection and the Life”, my main goal was to portray a Jesus Christ who I could relate to as a real person. Although I based His face on my earlier "Light of the World" image, I did want to portray Him against a familiar looking background, wearing clothes similar to what He may have worn during His mortality. I also used less saturated, earthy tones. I want the viewer to understand that He actually does exist, and that He is not just a man from ancient stories. Jesus Christ truly has overcome all things, and He really has risen from the grave. He is real, I know that, and I’m hoping to share that knowledge with others through this painting." - Brent Borup
