There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1).
The mural paintings in this triclinium in Rome depict a variety of judgement scenes. Some are thought to represent the pharaoh Bocchoris (735–728 BC), known for his jurisprudence and for his knowledge of legal matters, and another scene may represent Solomon. However, most cannot be associated with any known event. In the scene shown here, several bound men are brought in from the left, while two women appear to plead their case before the seated judge. In Paul’s epistle, he notes that believers are free from condemnation before God’s holy law. This fresco dates from the 1st century BC.
