The Aramaic Lord’s Prayer

This picture – “The Aramaic Lord’s Prayer” – was painted on the basis of the book “Prayers of the Cosmos.

Meditations on the Aramaic Words of Jesus” by Neil Douglas – Klotz.

The very words of the most popular Christian prayer, called Lord’s Prayer, are known even to the unbelievers. However, the Latin and later Greek translations of the original prayer of Jesus of Nazareth (later Jesus Christ) in its austerity given by the progress of the time and some Christian dogmas too, misses a lot of colourfulness, poetry and emotion of the Aramaic original. For example, we get much closer to understanding and experience of its real content through those words:

“Let us not be lost in superficial things (materialism, common temptations), but let us be freed from that which keeps us from our true purpose.” -

Compared to the traditional text:

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”

The words of this book could make the story and ideas of Jesus of Nazareth more understandable even for people not touched by the traditional Christian faith. The picture “Aramaic Words of Jesus” was intended as a caption to this extraordinary book and its kind and wise text.

In December last year, Cin Studio 2010 managed to contact the author of the book “Prayers of the Cosmos,” Mr Neil Douglas Klotz.

Picture "Aramejský Lord's Prayer" So he found his way to the more important co-creators (author's wonderful text), which highly pleased.

Neil Douglas Klotz not only agreed with this first calligraphic rendering of the contents of his book, but also with the production of other original paintings with a unique theme.

Cin Studio 2010 is preparing to create a unique series of images with the text "Aramaic Our Father" in different colours so that each viewer and reader can find their own visual representation, which will "speak his language" (favourite colour).
