At the Cross
This is a scene from John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress entitled "Christian at the Cross." Pilgrim's Progress is an allegory of a believer's life, ultimately ending with joyful entrance into the Kingdom of God. On his journey to the Celestial City, Christian now has arrived at a Cross. Here is the turning point in his life, where his sins are removed from him through Jesus' sacrificial death and resurrection.
About this creation

Now I saw in my dream, that the highway up which Christian was to go, was fenced on either side with a wall, and that wall was called Salvation. Up this way, therefore, did burdened Christian run, but not without great difficulty, because of the load on his back.


He ran thus till he came at a place somewhat ascending, and upon that place stood a cross, and a little below, in the bottom, a sepulchre. So I saw in my dream, that just as Christian came up with the cross, his burden loosed from off his shoulders, and fell from off his back, and began to tumble, and so continued to do, till it came to the mouth of the sepulchre, where it fell in, and I saw it no more.


Then was Christian glad and lightsome, and said, with a merry heart, "He hath given me rest by his sorrow, and life by his death." Then he stood still awhile to look and wonder; for it was very surprising to him, that the sight of the cross should thus ease him of his burden. He looked therefore, and looked again, even till the springs that were in his head sent the waters down his cheeks.

Just scrolling through the pages and came upon this little gem. Pilgrim's Progress has always been a favorite of mine and this MOC is a great tribute/ reminder why :)

Quoting Nick Barrett A nifty bit of landscape here, and a sweet scene.
Thanks. I really enjoy creations that highlight landscapes. But building them - they don't always turn out as I expect them. This was a rare one in which it did meet my expectations, well at least close enough. -LB Senior

Quoting Lemming the Builder Dude (formerly the Sith) For some reason, 'Amazing Grace' popped into my head looking at this. I like the minifig, and the path a lot. Which are really the whole moc, ummmm never mind
Indeed, the words of Amazing Grace are quite fitting. Your comment is much appreciated. -LB Senior

Quoting LukeSC Overlord Great scene. It's simplistic, but all the better for it.
Thanks. Not sure why, but it seems like most of my builds look rather simple. I guess it's just my style of building. -LB Senior

Very good, the path is great, and I like that he left his pack. The red flowers around the cross are very good too. The make the cross stand out.

Quoting MCLegoboy ! The build quality is wonderful and all, but I'm not so sure about the overall prettyness of it. I mean, although it has been a couple thousand years or close to that, it still was Golgatha, hill of the skull.
I don't think the cross and highway in the story represents Golgotha from Scripture. I think it is a more spiritual representation of a person journey to repentance. -LB Senior
