The Madness of the God King

The Madness of the God King by Ben Riddlebarger

I once saw a photograph on Facebook a couple years ago with a strong man in a swim suit pushing his friend in a wheelchair toting assault rifles and they were both happy and seemed to not have a care in the world. It was so strange and weird that of course I needed to draw it.

I based this drawing off of that. It morphed into a religious satire of this crazy world we currently are living in.

Drawing Bible Verses Matthew 19- Richie Rich asks Jesus about getting into Heaven…

richie rich

Matthew 19:16-23

A young  man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

“Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

“Which ones?” he inquired.

Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony,  honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’”

“All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Drawing Bible Verses John 12:14-16- Shrek Christ Rides into Jerusalem

Shrek the MessiahJohn 12:14-16 (On his way into Jerusalem towards a large crowd)  Shrek found a young donkey and sat on it, to fulfill what was written:

“Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion;

see, your king is coming,

seated on a donkey’s colt.

At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Shrek was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that these things had been done to him.
