This window depicts Jesus preaching from Peter's fishing boat.
"Jesus got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat."
In this window, Jesus is teaching by the Sea of Galilee. He is imploring the crowd to open their eyes and to see Him as He is. He is teaching them as one with authority, not as the scribes and the Pharisees. He is doing miracles that no mortal could do; that only God Himself could do. He is heralding the coming Kingdom of God; the Messiah, the Son of God, entering into their midst, breaking into their lives.
However, there are two Pharisee religious leaders standing at a distance on the right, with critical expressions of their faces, arms folded in scorn. Even their body language shouted their disapproval. They were the ones most learned in the law; they had read and studied the scriptures. Even so, they failed to recognize Jesus. Jesus didn't fit their idea of what a Messiah was supposed to be, so they rejected him.
"Won't you come and sit at the foot of the Master? Hear His voice today, and be taught by Him, and open the Bible. Do not put it off, do not delay, the Master is here, He is teaching your heart. His arms are open and He is speaking to you!"
-from the sermon, "The Blind Leadeth the Blind" by Dr. Stuart Broberg, Sept. 16, 2007
The Herron Window was presented in memory of Francis Herron (1774-1860), the third minister of First Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh, who served from 1811 to 1850.
