StPaul & Burning Of Pagan Books @ Ephesus.LucioMassari.1612

Lucio Massari, 1612: St. Paul and the Burning of Pagan Books in Ephesus. This scene reflects badly today on the Early Church and the New Testament, but it means to convey that the healing power of Christ and the apostles proved superior to the magic of sorcerers and entrepreneurs. The sons of Sceva at least knew what name to invoke; “the Jesus that Paul talks about.”
