The Bible

Bible Illustrated is a project where one Eastern Orthodox guy is attempting to illustrate the entire Bible using (primarily) traditional media, such as colored pencils, ink, watercolours, tempera and such. The imagery is based on Eastern Orthodox iconography. This labour is made possible by many patrons on different platforms whose pledges help me devote more time to the illustrations.

If a book of the Bible or a chapter within it is a link, it means it contains original illustrations of verses within those books and chapters. 100% mark in front of a chapter signifies that the entire chapter has been illustrated, and a YouTube link means that you can listen to me narrate the chapter as you watch the appropriate illustrations.

Translation used within the project is the 1899 American edition of the Douay–Rheims Bible. I have opted for this translation because it is in public domain, and it contains deuterocanonical books many of the modern Protestant Bibles sadly lack. These books were considered as canonical Scripture by Christians for a millenia and half and they will also be illustrated in due time.

You are free to use the images in this blog however you wish (commercial use included). If you plan to use the images commercially, please consider donating to the project.

Over time this project has evolved significantly. It now includes new media (initially it was only colored pencils), but now it has its own YouTube channel (where I comment on different aspects of Eastern Orthodox spirituality) as well as a webcomic. Both the channel and the webcomic are seen by me as promotional tools for the biblical illustrations, even though the channel has proven to be more popular. All three (illustrations, channel and webcomic) are there for the edification of the Church and in the glory of the Most Holy and Life Giving Trinity. Amen!

2 Thessalonians 1

Translation: DRA

1 Paul, and Sylvanus, and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Grace unto you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 We are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you towards each other, aboundeth:

4 So that we ourselves also glory in you in the churches of God, for your patience and faith, and in all your persecutions and tribulations, which you endure,

5 For an example of the just judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which also you suffer.

6 Seeing it is a just thing with God to repay tribulation to them that trouble you:

7 And to you who are troubled, rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven, with the angels of his power:

8 In a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God, and who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 Who shall suffer eternal punishment in destruction, from the face of the Lord, and from the glory of his power:

10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be made wonderful in all them who have believed; because our testimony was believed upon you in that day.

11 Wherefore also we pray always for you; that our God would make you worthy of his vocation, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness and the work of faith in power;

12 That the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ.
