Lazarus, the Beggar, and the Rich Man
“Now there was a certain rich man, and he was clothed in purple and fine linen, faring sumptuously every day: and a certain beggar named Lazarus was laid at his gate, full of sores, and desiring to be fed with the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s table; yea, even the dogs come and licked his sores.” Luke 16:19-21 ASV
Illustration of the rich man, sumptuously clothed in robes and eating a feast with many guests. A harpist plays in the background. Men and women eat and drink. There are arched windows in the background and an arched entryway leading to stairs. On the stairs is Lazarus, a beggar. Dogs are licking at his sores and his arms are raised in a gesture of begging.
