Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Matthew 13:1-2 (NLT)
1 Later that same day Jesus left the house and sat beside the lake. 2 A large crowd soon gathered around him, so he got into a boat. Then he sat there and taught as the people stood on the shore.

DRAWING NOTES:

TIME OF DAY:
Unspecified in the Bible. I have set the scene in the mid afternoon.

LIGHTING NOTES:
The sun (unseen & off to the right) strongly illuminates this scene, casting shadows to the left of figures and objects.

CHARACTERS PRESENT:
Jesus is sitting in a fishing boat, teaching the crowds of Hebrew people who are standing on the shore of the Sea of Galilee.

RESEARCH/ADDITIONAL NOTES:
This Bible Cartoon sets the scene for the parables that follow. Jesus is teaching the people using parables. The word “parable” comes from two Greek words (para and ballo), which together mean “to throw alongside.” In using parables, Jesus was using figurative speech, comparing a known truth with an unknown truth, literally throwing them alongside each other.

Here is the scene without the figures & boat in the foreground.
