Holman Hunt, the modern "evangelist of art," was much nearer the truth on this matter when he painted his celebrated picture, "The Shadow of Death." in which he clearly reveals his opinion that, whilst yet a horny-handed workman in the obscure carpenter's shop at Nazareth, making yokes and ploughs, for the husbandmen of Galilee, the shadow of the coming cross fell upon the pathway of Christ, and gave an unwonted solemnity to a young manhood, in all else so natural.
