Article quality... Kýrie, eléison[edit]

This article is sadly, sadly lost in the woods. I do not even know where to start my complaints, there are so many. The entire article is a mish-mash of randomly picked items, not representative at all. I think the sections on Miracles and Legacy epitomize the sad state of this wannabe article. The Miracles section lists 9 randomly picked miracles, in a haphazard order (Cana comes towards the end!) and some are unclear, e.g. Curing a sick child who was near death without links, etc. The Legacy section has one terse paragraph without a single WP:Secondary source, then a much larger section on the Book of Mormon. How does that describe the "Legacy of Jesus" in Christianity, when just one paragraph sans secondary references is used, and then the views of just one denomination? Kyrie Eleison, Lord have mercy! This article really needs a rewrite. I do not have time to rewrite it now, but will flag it as such. Help from knowledgeable editors will be appreciated.... Kyrie Eleison...

File:William Blake - Christ as the Redeemer of Man - WGA02225.jpg[edit]

@The New Classic and Hazhk: I still don't think this is a good image for the lead. Yes, it does represent the ascension of Jesus, but Blake's style is rather atypical. The painting by Vannini is far more recognizable as something typical, and its very well written caption recounts an important Christian belief about Jesus. The Blake image has been removed (at least) twice, and I support removing it once again. – Finnusertop (talkcontribs) 16:56, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

I agree with you. That's why I thanked you for your reversion.--Hazhk (talk) 17:11, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
Blake's atypical style is better as it is not cliche, and recounts more Christian beliefs than the other picture. It recounts Jesus' incarnation, deah, resurrection, and transfiguration by showing God the Father receiving Jesus. By showing Satan at the bottom, it displays Jesus' triumph over the Devil after his sacrifice that saved the world from the Devil's temptations-thus it even includes the belief the other picture's caption says, and in a more subtle way.The New Classic (talk) 00:03, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
A lead image doesn't have two pages of commentary, which, like many religious images by Blake, this would need. Johnbod (talk) 00:52, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
No, it wouldn't. The commentary I put here is only about as big as that of the current leas image.The New Classic (talk) 02:07, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
Yes, but it hardly explains the image. Johnbod (talk) 02:39, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
No, it is suficient. It is also hard evidence that the picture I chose delivers so much more info than the other one. Besides, Willam Blake seems to be much more notable an artist than the other painter (look at the size of their Wikipedia articles).The New Classic (talk) 04:06, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
