John 8:58-59 (ANIV)
58 “I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”
59 At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.
TIME OF DAY:
It was this cartoon that started my trend of illustrating the Pharisees as being in dark blue/purple robes & turbans. All later cartons with Pharisees depicted can trace their colour schemes back to this cartoon. The chief Pharisee has a golden sash.
The heavy rock-bearing bloke is not aiming to bash the head of the chief Pharisee, but is looking at Jesus!
By telling the Jews “before Abraham was born, I am!” Jesus was effectively saying that He was God, which is what upset them.
