The verses are lettered in the Fraktur style, both in black and red. They are put on top of a door to illustrate verse 9. The red is used for verses 4-5 to signify the blood that was put on the door posts and lintels at the Passover. They signify Christ's sacrifice for us. We are to love Him because He first loved us.
Story Behind the Art
I was thrilled when my son-in-law asked me to letter this passage for my daughter and him! At the time of this writing, they have two sweet and active children, whom we love dearly. The instruction to have God's Word displayed before our eyes is the motivation for Calligraphy for Christ.
