I am wondering if anyone would like to comment on how some of the iconography surrounding Mid-Pentecost shows the themes of the feast. I have seen three types in particular. The first is the child Christ seated in the teacher's throne, which I always assumed was based on His experience of being left there in the Gospel according to Saint Luke. An example: http://wwwdelivery.s...k_4069-6649.jpg
The second is similar, but clearly shows Christ as an adult. This seems to reflect the event as Scripture for the day lays out: His teaching while the Jews restrain themselves from harming Him since His hour had not yet come. An example: http://1.bp.blogspot...634b1eb67f5.jpg
The third is of Christ holding a pitcher (of water, I assume), as an image of His own Person being the Fountain of Living Water. An example: https://lh4.googleus...Ic/s800/816.jpg
Any commentary or further explanation would be much appreciated!
