The Creation panel from Creation, Covenant, Shekinah, Kingdom, Donald Jackson, 2006, The Saint John’s Bible, Order of Saint Benedict, Collegeville, Minnesota.
This illumination (with contribution by Chris Tomlin) takes us back to the theme of creation running throughout the Wisdom Books. The four panels refer back to the stories in the narrative: Creation, Flood, Exodus and the Temple.
This panel, with motifs from Genesis, is most clearly tied to the creation theme.
