I'm back onto the Bible stories at last! Our latest powerpoint is the 'Parable of the lost coin'. I've based the lady on the actress Olivia Hussey who played the part of Mary in the 'Jesus of Nazareth' film.
I drew the coins in picture one (right) from a photo I have of some first century silver coins.
In picture two, the young lady has lit an oil lamp and is reaching out for a broom in order to sweep the floor of her house in search of the lost coin. Although it's daylight, the rooms are still dark due to the small windows in the houses at this time. See the 'Houses in Bible times' post.
There are four pictures in this story which brings our total Bible picture count to 706.
