And after six days Jesus takes Peter, James, and John his brother, and brings them up into an high mountain apart,…
A Spanish artist was employed to paint a representation of " The Last Supper." It was his ambition to throw all the sublimity of his art into the figure and countenance of the Master; but he put on the table in the foreground some chased cups, the workmanship of which was exceedingly beautiful; and when his friends came to see the picture on the easel, every one was constrained to exclaim, "What lovely cups! Ah!" said he, "I have made a mistake; these cups divert the eyes of the spectator from the Master, to whom I wished to direct the attention of the observer." He then took his brush, and deliberately painted them off the canvas; for he was determined that "Jesus only" should be the centre of attraction and admiration.
