The Pharisee and the Publican — Tissot


Collections: Bible, Top 150

Category: Parable Popular

This artwork by Tissot shows the proud pharisee praying in the temple, while the penitent publican bows his head asking for mercy from God. The scene derives from one of the parables of Jesus Christ.

"Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee standing, prayed thus with himself: O God, I give thee thanks that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, as also is this publican. I fast twice in a week: I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes towards heaven; but struck his breast, saying: O God, be merciful to me a sinner. I say to you, this man went down into his house justified rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself, shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted. " — Luke 18:10-14
