Image Title: Jesus Teaches on False Prophets

Scripture Reference:

Description: In the foreground a false prophet stands on a pedestal marked by a wolf preaching to a crowd, as a guard confronts him. In the near background two men cut down and prepare to burn a tree. In the far background Jesus tells his disciples to beware of false prophets, who are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Includes the monogram of the woodcutter, Christoffel van Sichem II (1577-1658) near the top left corner in between the trees; his son, Christoffel van Sichem III (1618-1659), may have collaborated with him on these images.
