Fortieth Epistle of Qumran Scrolls The Metaphor Tale of New Testament

Author Name: Udayasankar | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Fortieth Epistle of Qumran Scrolls is a metaphor covers the period from the capture of Jesus till his resurrection, pictured through a varied reading of the New Testament, connecting those incidents with acclaimed biblical paintings and edifices, understanding their fabric and anatomy, intermixed with the author’s curiosity, inventiveness and great panache. This work unassumingly understands each of those episodes and occurrences cited in the Bible that later became an inspiration for great paintings, with the author sparkling them further with his unambiguous imagination through various imageries, walking with us through Jericho Hills, Capernaum, Galilee and many other towns and hills of yesteryears, holding the hands of Bertolucci, Dali, Chagall along with most of the Apostles. Dali’s ‘The Crucifixion’ is inspired by Luke’s; the Jericho monastery carved out of a mountain plays a pivotal role in forming these paintings as well as the story of these three days. The detailing interwoven with symbols like fever, pox, desert storms and many others make each sentence gain depth than any ocean, pregnant with meanings par simple interpretation.
