"When I went to paint that pivotal moment as Christ undertook the Atonement of the world, I wanted to focus on how the angel from heaven strengthened Him as He accepted the will of the Father and began to suffer for our sins," Christensen wrote. "I don't think the angel was there to soothe Him or force Him to accept His fate."
