Following the lead of Rembrandt, who gave Jesus a new look in the 1600s, Kentucky artist Stephen Sawyer is trying to give Jesus a more macho image. Sawyer says Jesus preferred the outdoors, and He couldn’t have overturned the money-lenders tables being a wimp. So using a ripped surfer as a model, he paints portraits of Jesus as muscular and tattoed, and as a boxer and a biker.
- In his version of “The Last Supper” the diciples don’t drink wine, they do shots of Tequila, start a fight and get thrown out by bouncers.
- Jesus would never make it as a boxer because he’d keep turning the other cheek.
- Sawyer is also hoping to launch a new biblical reality show called, “Pimp My Camel”.
