Prince of Peace

Brent and Jeanette Borup


"Jesus Christ stands majestically on the threshold of the middle court of the temple in His day. That location was chosen for the setting of this painting for a reason, because the steps He is standing on is located within the court of the gentiles, where all are welcome to enter, and the area through that door is known as the court of women. I can't think of a better place for the Prince of Peace to be seen by those seeking after peace. He also holds an olive branch, a symbol of peace while a white dove looks up at Him. Christ is wearing a purple sash, a color associated with royalty, a grey garment, symbolizing the poverty and modesty of many He associated Himself with, and a white robe, symbolizing the purity found in the temple.  Christ is truly the Prince of Peace, and by living and sharing His Gospel we can include everyone in His blessings." - Brent Borup

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." - Isaiah 9:6
