Tattooed Jesus Draws Reactions, Some To Christ

Much like the famed Jesus Is campaign, Jesus Tattoo is a starting point for discussion both negative and positive, and a place where people can see our iniquities laid upon the Lord of All.

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows … upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. – Isaiah 53:4-5

A small group out of Texas has started a creative campaign to bring people to Christ, and it’s not going over as well as they might have hoped. Jesus Tattoo is exactly what it sounds like: an image of the Savior covered in body ink. The billboards, deployed across the southwest (and growing), point people to a website where the Gospel message can be found, Jesus indeed taking on our burdens and replacing fear with trust, self-righteousness with humility, depression with confidence through His patient work – and so taking on our own iniquities. But the image of Jesus tattooed has some calling “blasphemy.” Much like the famed Jesus Is campaign, Jesus Tattoo is a starting point for discussion both negative and positive, and a place where people can see our iniquities laid upon the Lord of All.
