Christ & the Rich Young Ruler – Hofmann

     This artwork by H. Hofmann shows Jesus speaking with the rich young ruler and telling him that he must sell what he has, leave everything, and follow the Savior in order to be perfect. At Christ's words, the rich young man is downcast in spirit because he is unwilling to part with his worldly wealth. The story of Christ and the Rich Young Ruler is recounted in Matthew 19:21-26.
