There used to be threads around here from one of the owner's wives (valhall) that had a wealth of information on these and other paintings, that were
connected to the church, but unfortantely they were lost years ago, when they changed servers or something.
Leonardo's focal point does tend to be on John's hands and even conspiracy theorists Clive and Picknett dubbed it the "John gesture." Trust me - God
can reveal his mysteries to whomever he chooses. Clive, Picknett & Dan Brown at least realized there are mysteries to be learned, but because they
didn't have all the pieces of the puzzle their theories all fall apart because they don't align with scripture.
From the womb, John the Baptist was filled with God's Spirit. He was such a good person, that even Jesus testified on his behalf, that amongst those
born of women, that there is none greater than John. He also testified that John was more than a prophet because he is sent ahead of the Messiah to
prepare the way. What most people totally fail to realize is that John is still at work by preparing the way for Jesus, not by power, nor by might
but by God's Spirit.
Jesus is the bridegroom and the bride belongs to him. John is only the friend of the bridegroom and tells us plainly in John 3, that he is not the
Messiah but only sent ahead of him. Another part to the mystery of John is found in the parable of the 10 virgins, where it says: "At midnight the
cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!'"
Let me ask you a hypothetical question. If Jesus decided to reveal himself to you, you are in bed asleep and a headless John the Baptist came down
from the spiritual realm one night around midnight - how might he communicate to you?
