Struck by scripture reminding readers that "his hand is stretched out still" (Isaiah 9:12), Paige felt impressed by the Savior’s desire that humanity develop a relationship with Him. Choosing to focus on the hand and cropping the image short of the face requires the viewer to accept the invitation, complete the work necessary to know the Savior, and finish the portrait.

"He doesn’t just want us to know about Him, He wants us to know Him, to develop a personal connection with Him."
