You cannot blot Him out

Hagai Sophia

The Mosque of Saint Sophia in Constantinople [now Istanbul] is a transformed Christian church. It was one of the most beautiful churches in the world. All the Christian inscriptions and symbols have been painted out and Moslem inscriptions and symbols put in their places. As we stood under the great dome we could see that the figure of the ascending Christ with out stretched hands in blessing, which had been painted out, was coming back through the wearing off of the covering paint. I turned to a friend and said: “He is coming back. You cannot blot him out. Through the accretions and daubs of the centuries he is coming back again. He shall reign. The future belongs to him.”

–E. Stanley Jones,
Christ at the Round Table
