In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking “where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observe his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage”. Matthew 2:1-12 Emil Nolde, “Adoration […]

What could the Doctors of Law or Theology or Political science, etc. teach the child-Christ? Nothing, because all their knowledge reduces, belittles Being Christ. It’s putting imperatives (even when the right ones) instead of freedom of critical loving. “Doctors of Law” can only help baby- and child-Christ to physically grow and protect him from self-serving […]

Emil Nolde, “Courtship”, 1919 According to the Nolde’s painting there are at least three keys to earthly happiness – two of them belong to the seductively behaving young man and one to the woman in the moment of being seduced.
