Okay, I love Logos Bible Software, and so that means this is in no way a complaint. They do great things. It is just that a graphic that appeared on their home page today reminded me of Pet Peeve #48.
I can’t show you the graphic because they must have crammed too many pixels into it. But their graphic is by no means alone in the world of such renditions. I don’t think I have ever seen an accurate rendition of the ark of the covenant in my life. The cherubim are invariably represented as kneeling human figures, with big sweeping wings curving upwards, making them look for all the world like jalapeños at prayer.
That is not a cherub. Neither is a cherub to be thought of the way some Renaissance painters did, as flying chubby babies with wings that wouldn’t keep a pigeon up. You want a cherub? I’ll show you a cherub. Put one your next Valentine card and see what happens.
