The Widow of Nain
‘Death be not proud’, wrote the English poet John Donne (1572–1631) in Sonnet X.
One short sleep past, we wake eternally
And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.
These exhibitions explore the idea that God’s redeeming love is more powerful than death—an idea confirmed consummately for Christians in Jesus Christ’s resurrection, but traceable in multiple episodes of the Scriptures of both Christians and Jews.
