The Bible in Stained Glass
From a time even before the practice of Christianity was legally permitted in the Roman empire, Christian congregations employed art to depict the central tenets of their faith. At Christ Church, our story in stained glass follows the story of God’s working through the Hebrew people, from creation to the preaching of the prophets, along the right wall of the nave (sanctuary) — right to left as Hebrew is read. On the left side of the nave (and the narthex) are scenes from the stories of Jesus of Nazareth, from birth to crucifixion, resurrection and ascension — left to right as the Greek language of the gospels is read. The final chapter in our story is told in the Revelation windows over the main doors of the church, as we leave.
