 Ch. 7: Adam and Christ 

 Adult Jesus 

Is this figure, whose arm is in position to cradle the lamb, that of adult Jesus, "The Good Shepherd"? Did legend claim Christ was to be united with Eve as the "Second Adam"66 because Christ had the same geographical figure as Adam when Adam was in the Garden with Eve? Can we here see the "radiant heart" of Jesus radiating like "sunlight"? And, can we now physically see why the hearts of Jesus and Adam were sometimes portrayed as being pierced by arrows?67
